Episode 6 - Weymouth
Weymouth Mobile Pod
This week the mobile pod is at Weymouth Festival, but the doctors aren’t here to soak up the sun. They’re on a mission to tackle… Well, some dodgy tackle. Dr Dawn sees Des, who’s had small blisters on his scrotum for several decades. Fortunately for Des, his problem is harmless. The blood blisters are known as angiokeratoma, and are caused by ruptured blood vessels forming small blister-like pockets of blood under the skin. They’re generally harmless, but can be removed by laser treatment. Des comes to see Dawn again later; he was so pleased with his diagnosis that he’s had the Embarrassing Bodies logo tattooed on his arm! And Dawn thought she’d seen everything…
Next into the pod is Justin, who has extremely itchy feet. Dr Dawn suspects a fungal infection, very common on feet and other warm, moist areas. Justin is advised to visit his GP who will take a sample, get it analysed and then prescribe the correct medication to banish the fungi once and for all.Next »
