1. How Do I Avoid Red Bumps From Bikini Waxes?

His advice on avoiding red bumps from bikini waxes included: opt for hard wax, apply hydrocortisone after, and don't have sex for two days after waxing.
2. What Do I Do If I Lose A Tampon?

3. How Soon After A Heart Attack Can My Spouse Have Sex?
This is a really important question for couples who go through the hardship of a heart attack, be sure to check with your primary doctor too. Oz does have some tips he offered on the show: touch your loved one's toe, if it’s warm, that means circulation is good. If not, they should see a doctor.
4. Why Do I Have 9 Nipples?
Leah came on The Dr. Oz Show to figure out the mystery behind why she has nine nipples. Dr. Oz informs us that at least 6% of people have at least one extra nipple, and they can pop up along your milk paths during puberty. There’s no real risk or danger associated with these.
5. Is Camel Toe A Health Problem?
This is a question that many, many have wondered, yet few have asked. Dr. Oz says camel toe comes from wearing pants that are too tight, and it’s worth keeping an eye on, because too many “front wedgies” can lead to yeast infections.
6. Why Are My Wife’s Farts Louder At Night?
One brave husband asked Dr. Oz why his wife’s farts are louder at night, who responded by explaining that when you’re sleeping, your body relaxes and lets go of gas easier than when you’re awake. He suggests eating a little less before bed, especially dairy and carbonated beverages, to curb the toots.
