Dr Oz: Why Does My Butt Itch?
A very brave audience member stepped onto Dr. Oz’s stage to ask the question that she is most afraid to talk to her doctor about. She says her husband, friends, and co-workers all notice that he is constantly picking a wedgie, but she says her secret is that it is because she has an itchy butt.
She begged Dr. Oz to help her figure out what is really going on so she can stop with this embarrassing habit. Dr. Oz demonstrated (with the use of an inner tube) what causes a person’s bottom side to become itchy. He explained that often times people wipe themselves, then wipe again and again with too much pressure, which can lead to rawness and even fungus where the skin has gotten raw. This is because of using dry toilet paper, which is like sandpaper on your bottom in this situation, according to Dr. Oz.

Dr Oz: Wear an Underwire Bra To End Boob Sweat
Another brave audience member shared her most awkward question with Dr. Oz. She explained how many people sweat from their armpits and have stains on their shirts, but she says she sweats horribly from her breasts and it leaves very embarrassing wet spots on the front of her shirts. She says she has tried a few tricks, but nothing seems to work because it keeps on happening.
Dr. Oz says because of the crease under our breasts, perspiring under them is pretty inevitable, but there is something we can do to prevent the embarrassing wetness on our clothing. First you need a bra with an underwire. Then you can buy inexpensive adhesive strips to stick to the lower edge of your bra to keep your breasts from sagging, which is what creates the opportunity for sweat to occur and build up.
Dr Oz: Neck Hickey Nickel Allergy
One more brave soul from the audience shared her most awkward question with Dr. Oz. She said she often gets bruises on her neck that look like hickeys. She says she is 38 years old, married, and a Mom, and she is just embarrassed walking around looking like she has a neck full of hickeys.
Dr. Oz says that a typical hickey is caused because of the suction placed on the neck causing the capillaries to become irritated, but in some cases, these types of marks on the necks can actually be caused by allergies, as in the case with this guest.
Dr. Oz says a common allergy is to Nickel. He explains it is commonly found in jewelry, something this guest says she wears a lot of, so Dr. Oz recommends buying a nickel testing kit to check her jewelry and if she finds any she should stop wearing those items immediately.
