A recent study in Britain found that 80 percent of pharmacists say they can tell if a customer is shopping for something they are too embarrased to ask for.

And many people say there are problems they would be too embarrassed to talk to their own doctor about.

"If I had body odor, it would be pretty embarrassing."

"Probably bad breath, things like that."

"I imagine venereal disease. I imagine that would be pretty high on the list."

But even if you are embarrassed, there is no need to suffer. There's a website that can help answer all your questions. It's called embarrassing problems-dot-com.

It covers everything from acne to itching, from baldness to belly button discharge.

It provides explanations for what may be taking place ... and offers solutions. Most importantly, it tells you when you need to discuss your problem with physician, because it may be a sign of something more serious.

It even offers advice on how to talk to your doctor about a problem.

It's all designed to help people get the help they need, rather than leaving them to suffer in silence or worse, to die of embarrassment.
