‘I had to explain that you can’t use bug spray on pubic crabs’: Doctors reveal the dumbest patients they have EVER treated

Medics have taken to secret-sharing app Whisper to reveal the stupidest people they have ever treated, including a person who thought it was safe to use home insecticide to deal with pubic crabs

  • Medical professionals took to secret-sharing app Whisper to reveal their stories
  • Many are truly bizarre, including a patient who used catheter bag as a water gun
  • Others more worrying, such as woman who thought under-18s couldn’t have babies
