You Should Really See a Doctor

Dr Pixie McKenna and Dr Phil Kiernan are back with their pop up clinic to events across the country for the third series of their RTÉ One medical series You Should Really See A Doctor.

As well as the usual lumps, bumps and fungal toe infections – in this series the doctors try to find a diagnosis for a man with mysterious but persistent mouth ulcers; a woman with severe pelvic girdle pain; a farmer with a strange burning sensation in his feet; a lecturer with chronic earache and a woman with scarring from chicken pox.

The doctors also find time to give breast check lessons to the attendees of the Blue Jean Country Queen Festival; testicular cancer checks to the boy racers at a Classic Car Show in Limerick: give urine tests to check dehydration to a gnarly gang of vikings at the Waterford Country Fair and give sound advice to music loving teenagers at the Irish Maritime Fesitval in Drogheda.

And in a new addition to each episode the doctors will explore different areas of consumer health – from cutting edge research around gut health and its relationship to mental health; different treatments for the menopause; and the danger of buying prescription drugs online.
