Watch Embarrassing Bodies
Embarrassing Boddies, is a British television show that is based out of a mobile clinic. People with what they consider to be embarrassing medical problems seek treatment. This is not limited to just physical medical conditions but, includes dental work as well. A mobile clinic of three doctors, travel around different parts of England, and see people who have embarrassing illnesses and try to help solve their problems. Each patient must send in an application and be reviewed before being accepted to get help from the mobile clinic.
The program is a documentary style show that is graphic in nature. Content is not for all audiences as there are images of medical conditions and diseases. These include but, are not limited to, surgical scars and infections, skin rashes and irritations, and damaged dental cavities. Some of the stories so far have been on teenage bodies, older bodies, foot fungus and facial moles.
Each show is approximately fifty minutes in duration. An average of three cases are viewed in each episode. Patients come into the clinic and explain there situation to the doctor. The doctor than tells the patient what they are suffering from and either provides treatment or course of action to be taken to relieve symptoms or refers the patient to a specialist for the correct medical care. After the appointed treatment is carried out, the patient then returns to the mobile clinic and does a follow up with the doctor to determine if treatment was successful and what if anything else may need to be done to continue good health.
This is an educational style program that touches on what society would consider irregular medical conditions. The program not only focuses on treatments but, try's to reinforce that individuals from all walks of life can have medical difficulties and that they aren't as bad as they may seem.
