Dr Oz: What’s Your Problem?
You have health questions that you’re too afraid to ask your doctor. Not a problem. On today’s show, Doctor Oz gave you the fast fixes for your common health problems. Dr Oz did his homework to find out what really bothers you about your health. He scoured the Internet, the phone lines and even hit the streets. Dr Oz even searched the malls. What did he come up with? People had questions about causes for muscle pain and how to get rid spider veins. What’s your question? (Trust me when I say it couldn’t be worse than some of these other questions.) You should also checkout the previous shows that Dr Oz did on the topics of Cold Sore Remedies, Vodka Foot Bath for Sweaty Feet and Butt Acne Remedies.
Dr Oz: Butt Acne Remedy
Lynn, from Buffalo, NY told Dr Oz that she had irritating acne on her butt and the back of her legs. The acne was sore and painful and she wanted to know what to do about it. (Dr Oz showed an image of her backside, which looked painful.)
Acne is caused by inflammation in the body.
Normally, the skin is flat, but when you get inflamed skin, the area gets larger and puffs up and then the pimple forms. The inflammation begins to ooze from the pimple. The pimple literally shoots out “stuff” because your body is trying to expel that inflammation. (Yuck!)
Treatment for Acne:
Doctor Oz says to treat butt acne the same as you do acne on your face.
-Salicycle acid or benzoyl peroxide
-Wear cotton underwear

Lauren, from Hawaii, wanted to know how to prevent cold sores. She gets them every couple of months from stress or the sun. The last one she had was about 2 weeks ago. (Dr Oz showed an image of her cold sore and it wasn’t that bad. He also showed an image of an extreme cold sore and that one was gross!) Lauren told Dr Oz that days before the cold sore appeared, she got a tingling sensation. “Tingle is a sign not to mingle,” Dr Oz told her.

Dr Oz: Rumbling Stomach Remedy
Lynette, from SC, told Dr Oz that she constantly had loud noises coming from her stomach all day long. Dr Oz put on the stethoscope to her stomach and checked it out. It was LOUD! People were always asking her if she was hungry or had to go to the bathroom. (LOL!)
Doctor Oz says that if you haven’t eaten anything, you may get a rumbling noise inside your stomach. If you’ve eaten the wrong kinds of food, you can also get a rumbling noise.
