Dr Pimple Popper’s latest video has had people in sat in disgusted fascination as she shares how she squeezed a cyst that oozed like “wet old newspaper”. For people who love to squeeze spots, this is certainly one to watch.
In Dr Pimple Popper’s latest video, she compares the grey mush what comes squeezing out of her patient’s back to a “wet newspaper”. If the description enough isn’t nauseating then the footage will certainly top it off.
Dr Pimple Popper, whose real name is Sandra Lee, shared the video of her patient’s back on Monday and it has since been viewed over 300,000 times.
The LA-based dermatologist used a scalpel to slice open the lump which was positioned on the woman’s back and then used her hands to squeeze the pus out. However, the pus that oozes out of the gap is not the white gooey pus she was expecting.
Upon the pus coming out, Dr Lee says: “You’ve got wet newspaper in here, that’s what we call it.
“Or, like that balut. It’s like a type of chicken or a quail egg? Oh no, a duck.”
To get the rest of the pus out of the huge cyst, the dermatologist has to numb the area further.
As she does so, the woman tells her it “feels really strange”.
Understandingly, Dr Lee responds: “The only thing I could compare it to is like a C-section when people are working on you but you can’t really feel what they’re doing.”
As the outer edges of the cyst remain attached to the skin, the doctor has to snip away at the edges.
Eventually, Dr Lee is able to remove the final part of the lump. To make sure it doesn’t grow back, she has to check the gaps in case there’s any sneaky pus hidden away.
She explains: “What happens if you leave a little bit of the sac wall, they’re really thin and it tears easily and it grabs to your regular skin so it’s easy for it to potentially stay there.
“So, we look at it really carefully and we triple check to make sure we get it all because sometimes they come back.”
So that the scar has time to heal, Dr Lee advises that the woman avoid doing stretches or yoga as the tension needs to be kept to a minimal.
She explained: “Sometimes on the back, not so common on the lower back, but on the upper back, there’s a risk of a keloid scar.
“They’re an overgrowth of tissue when the scar is really raised up and that’s a risk that can happen.
“It’s not something we really have much control over – some people are more prone to it, but it doesn’t sound like you’ve had one so that’s good.
“If it gets really raised or itchy as it’s healing, that’s an indication it might be trying to thicken.
“So that’s something to bring to me or another doctors because they can inject something in it to settle it down so it won’t get big.”
Thankfully, the patient’s scar is left nice and neat once it is all stitched up.
Following the procedure, Dr Lee shows her patient the video of what came out of her back.
Pointing direct to the “wet newspaper” pus, she explains: “This is all just wet skin cells that have been mashed in there.”
