Dr. Christian:
There’s absolutely no need for people to feel embarrassed because believe me, I’ve seen it all before.

Why have you just come to see me now about this..?

I’d hate to see what could develop under his foreskin if it was left…

It is quite likely you may have something. If you come and see us we’re not going to chop it off but if you don’t, it might fall off by itself…

But your results are, quite frankly, shocking…

There are certain parts of our bodies that we don’t talk about but when they go wrong, we should…

You’ve got away with it…

People would rather suffer in silence then get these things treated and that’s ridiculous in this day and age.

I'm a 20 year old girl at University. I have been suffering with sleep problems for the last few years. For about two weeks to this date, I have not been able to sleep until 2am. I feel wide awake and if I wake up at 7am I feel wide awake, however, if I have a lie in or get a full nights sleep I actually feel more tired and feel like I've barely slept. I have really bad bags under my eyes. They are really purple and awful. I also have quite bad acne and have suffered with it for years. In February, I was given Duac once daily gel which I have now been using for 3 months and this has improved my skin slightly but not much. I just feel that my face looks horrible and it makes me feel ugly! I would love to just have a make-up free face. Please help!

I just wanted to say thank you. Because of one of your episodes my husband realised the mark under my eye was to do with high cholesterol. The blood test i had revealed an extremely high reading for my age and i am now in the process of getting it sorted out. Thank you again, without your programme we would never have known.

Hi Evie, Unfortunately we can't give any medical advice to you directly but we would suggest that you try and talk to someone who can as soon as possible. The NHS has a free number you can call from any phone which is 111. They'll be able to tell you what's the best course of action to take.

For some months now my brother in law has suffered with excess saliva in his mouth which is debilitating and affecting his quality of life.Doctors say nothing can be done. Surely someone somewhere can offer a solution or remedy. He is 76 and has aged dramatically in such a short time due to this affliction. Thanks in advance.

Please help, My brother is very religious (RC) and only reads Catholic literature, recently he calimed that gay people were indeed perverted bacause of higher rate of what I think he called Ephebophilia, a sexual interest in post pubecent teenagers and that this was a good reason to prevent gay teachers from teaching. Please tell me there is no real evidence to back this up. And if there are any good studies I could give him to prove this. Thank you.
