Abnormal urine? Stubborn pimples? Smelly privates? The Doctors take on the most embarrassing and unsightly body problems.
A Hangover Reprieve?
New research shows that the older you are, the less likely you are to experience a hangover after consuming a few alcoholic drinks. Conversely, younger men and women are eight times more likely to suffer a hangover. “That’s just because younger people drink eight times as much!” E.R. physician Dr. Travis Stork quips.
Dr. Travis advises that in order to avoid a hangover, the best course of action is to drink in moderation.
Pamper Your Privates
The Doctors discuss three new products that aim to keep your private parts clean and comfortable.
To Squeeze or Not to Squeeze?
Dermatologist Dr. Will Kirby joins The Doctors to discuss the story of a woman with a 25-year-old pimple. Dr. Kirby explains that this type of pimple is called a dilated pore winer — a giant, solitary black head, usually found on older patients. They occur when the combination of bacteria, sebum and dead skin cells form for a period typically longer than 30 days. The only way to properly treat such a condition is with surgical removal to ensure that no additional bacteria enter the infected area.

Susan, known on stage as Busty Heart, has an unusual profession: She uses her size 34M breasts to break and flatten items. She joins The Doctors to discuss the difficulties of finding a properly fitting bra for her bountiful bosom. And, the co-stars of Lifetime's Double Divas, Molly Hopkins and Cynthia Decker, join the show to offer their advice to Susan for choosing the right bra.
A Prize Penis
The Doctors are joined by Nick, a man who holds a brand-new title that most men would find very embarrassing — he is the recent winner of Brooklyn’s Smallest Penis contest. Dr. Dudley Danoff, urologic surgeon and author of Penis Power: The Ultimate Guide to Male Sexual Health, examines Nick and answers Nick’s questions about his size down there.
"Penis size does not dictate who you are as a man and what you can do," says Nick.
Find out what Dr. Danoff says could be affecting the length of Nick's penis.
Dr. Travis reminds everyone that nothing is ever too embarrassing for your doctor. So, if something doesn’t feel, look or sound right, get it checked out!
