‘Dr Pimple Popper’: Krista’s sweat can fill buckets, can Dr Sandra Lee help her with the unique skin condition?
Krista, one of the patients on the January 18 episode of ‘Dr Pimple Popper’ on TLC, has hyperhidrosis, which is when you literally drip sweat from your body. Dr Sandra Lee treated three patients whose skin condition cannot be more different in this episode. “I sweat buckets and gallons of water every single day,” says Krista.
The 33-year-old Krista first realized she was different from other kids when she was still in school and she would sweat relatively more than other kids. She squeezed her top and socks on camera to show that she was not joking when she said she can fill a bucket with her sweat.
Her sister, Karla, fortunately, did not suffer from the condition and was in tears when she realized how much her sister was bothered due to that. Karla informed that she was not able to go anywhere due to her condition. She always felt conscious when she tried on clothes while shopping and went out with friends.
The twins hoped with all their heart that Dr Sandra Lee would be able to help Krista with her condition and she would get her life back. Dr Lee used a sweat reduction machine on Krista's underarms which used heat to get rid of the sweat problem permanently. The machine made fart noises but Krista was so worried about if it would work that she was tensed the entire time.
A viewer wrote, “The twins got me in my feelings. I’m praying she gets some answers!!” Another wrote, “I hope @SandraLeeMD can help the lady with the sweating. The sisters had me crying”
Once the underarms were done, Dr Lee botoxed her hands. Krista admitted she never thought she would have botox on her hands one day. Her underarms and her hands which were her main source of extreme sweat were fixed and Dr Lee hoped that it would work.
What do you know! It did work, as Krista reported after a 17 hr workday that she didn’t sweat at all. Krista, who is a beautiful young woman, looked happier than before. “Krista looks so happy now!! What a smile!!” wrote a viewer. “I am so happy for the twin with the sweating problem,” wrote another. “Krista is a tough cookie. And a gorgeous woman!” wrote yet another viewer.
