Embarrassing Health Problems Can Be Treated at Home

22Sep09

Have you ever had a health problem that you were too embarrassed to talk about? You are not alone. Most patients will make an appointment with their usual primary care provider under the guise of a less embarrassing problem only to reveal something completely unrelated at the time of the visit.  It can be difficult to bring up serious health concerns, especially the ones that make you question “Am I normal”. Embarrassing medical problems should not be ignored and can be treated in the privacy of your own home.

Though it can be intimidating to bring up your embarrassing health  problems to a relative stranger, your health care provider should be the first person you turn to when facing an illness, no matter how embarrassed you are. Remember: We see tons of patients and probably have seen your same problem many times before. No matter how ashamed you are, it is important for the health of you and others to get symptoms of contagious illnesses, such as Herpes, examined before it is spread to others. You might be interested to know that one out of five adults have been infected with genital herpes and there is no known cure for herpes.

If you are still too embarrassed to see a doctor, look into medical house calls medical providers.  In the privacy of your own home, office or hotel you can have a professional medical consultation. Metro Medical Direct allows you to request the consultation on line and with the use of e-prescriptions you don’t even have to face a pharmacy staff.

You can treat other problems, such as hyperhidrosis, which is a medical jargon word for too much sweating. Your nurse practitioner can prescribe a medication to help with this condition and refer you to a specialist to surgically deal with the problem if medicine therapy does not work.

Some of the most common and embarrassing medical problems that can be treated by the Nurse Practitioner in the privacy of your home, office or hotel include:

Herpes, Irritable Bowel Syndrome [IBS] (Constipation & Diarrhea), Yeast Infections (for men and women), urine dribbling, urinary tract infections, hyperhidrosis

You have no reason to be embarrassed. You can be treated with the dignity and respect and deserve.
