Dr Oz: Too Much Information
Sometimes we have personal, embarrassing, and intimate medical problems or questions that we are just too shy or mortified to bring up, even among friends or in front of a doctor. But if there’s anything you can count on with Dr Oz, it’s that he is not shy about tackling sensitive topics, and he seems not to have any capacity for embarrassment. He will talk about anything with anyone.
That’s why he set up a stand at the South Street Seaport to ask everyday people about their biggest health questions. Many of them had to do with constipation, frequent urination, and questions about anatomy or health problems. After getting countless questions, Dr Oz returned to the safety of his studio to address some of the most popular queries.
Dr Oz: Is It Safe To Hold Your Urine?
However, Dr Oz cautioned that you shouldn’t make a habit of doing this simply for pleasure. Holding the urine can lead to a variety of health issues, including Kidney Infections and other complications. Make sure you are evacuating your Bladder whenever you feel the need to go.
Dr Oz: Belly Fat Rash
The next brave audience member was Veronica, who presented with a burning sensation occurring under her breasts and belly fat. She said this problem has been persistent since she was 13.
Dr Oz suggested that it may be a Yeast Infection, but could also be a sign of Diabetes. Veronica admitted she is Pre-Diabetic, and Dr Oz referred her to her own doctor for follow up on her rash.
Dr Oz: Coconut Oil for Yeast Infection
You can help your body avoid Yeast Infections by keeping the area clear of moisture. Also try a Cornstarch Powder or Coconut Oil to sooth the rash.
Dr Oz: Rectal Burning & Hemorrhoids
Annette complained about her problems with eating spicy foods. She said she enjoys eating them, but afterward feels like it is going to “burn another hole in my butt.” After experiencing this pain, she develops a Hemorrhoid.
Dr Oz explained that spicy foods send those fiery signals from the mouth to your stomach. Though the burning eventually goes away, the spiciness remains and may not be properly digested. This can sometimes come out unexpected when you are on the toilet.
His advice was to make sure you are eating a diet high in Fiber. He also recommended drinking Milk after eating spicy foods, to help cleanse the stomach. Milk is also better than water for soothing the too-spicy taste.
