Doctor Christian helps 37 year old Adam who has a rare penis problem. Suffering for the past ten years he is now in danger of losing both the ability to urinate and have sex – before he even hits 40. Can his penis be rebuilt by multiple operations?

Dr Dawn helps Sally, a young mother who was born without ears. Can complex reconstruction help her hear clearly for the first time in her life and improve her appearance? And Dr Pixie helps one woman who came to the clinic allergic to sperm – can Embarrassing Bodies finally solve the mystery?

Meanwhile in Magaluf the doctors turn their attention to the sexual health risks on a typical lads’ week away.

It was nice to see something on dermatographism, as until I got it, I'd never even heard of anything like this, and it was difficult and worrying to deal with until the doctor gave me an explanation as to what it was. Many people have asked me if there was something wrong, especially if I scratched my face. I react to scratches and rubbing exactly like the first image in the programme where they describe the condition. My doctor called it pressure urticaria. I'm on fexofenadine for it, which reduces the reaction to the level of redness that the lady on this programme had, which was a huge improvement. Thankfully, the itchiness has gone down for the most part, but I still wake up covered in red marks from scratching unconsciously in the night. It's often very itchy until the antihistamine kicks in

My son had to be circumcised when he was 7. It was a long time ago and at the consultation I was in a bit of shock and didn't really take in what the doctor said. I had initially taken my son to the doctor as there was very occasionally blood in his urine. The bits I remember from the consultation (after any kidney problems were ruled out) are that my son had a skin condition, and if he wasn't circumcised he may get scar tissue which could cause problems later in life. I may be totally making this up but my ears heard some longer name for the condition and that it was abbreviated to PXO. I would really like to know if this is the same as the guy had who had the scar tissue in his urethra and/or the name of the condition.

Hello The chap with the white skin on his pens. I have what I thought was Vitiligo. But the white skin does seem to get tight. What was the name of the issue he had so I can check it out? Cheers
