Patients for Episode 8 included 38-year-old Jeff, whose in-growing facial hair was destroying his self confidence. There was Rosacea suffering Susan who was so embarrassed about her constant blushing that she couldn’t even face going for a job interview.

Finally there was Geoff, who had reached the end of his tether with his severe psoriasis. Due to complications he couldn’t have light therapy, so his last hope is the Embarrassing Illnesses clinic.
Dr Jessen also hit a student union bar where he explained how dietary habits were crucial when it came to avoiding bowel cancer.
