‘Dr Pimple Popper’ Spoilers: Who is Reginald? Meet the man whose massive ginger-like growth stumped Dr Sandra Lee
His wife said Regie wore a cap on the day of their wedding and the first time they were in bed together, Regie had a towel on his head
Reginald, 51, works for a moving company. You will never see him without a cap because he has been using it to cover a truth that has caused immense pain and suffering in his life. What started out as a razor burn, soon started spreading and growing. If he scratched it, it would sometimes pop with blood and puss coming out of it and it would smell.
Regie described it as gross and there seemed no way to get rid of it. He had already been to four different doctors with no results. The fourth doctor applied a radiation method which apparently made it even worse. Since then Reginald has been highly skeptical of doctors and made up his mind not to consult anyone else. He said, “I stopped going to doctors, period!”
His job in the moving company requires him to lift heavy packages and sometimes when he is lifting something like a mattress, his head gets brushed against the material and he feels a painful stinging sensation. Even though he had accepted that the rest of his life was going to be like that, his wife who is his biggest advocate said otherwise. She has immense faith in Dr Lee and talked him into consulting her.
His wife said Regie wore a cap on the day of their wedding and the first time they were in bed together, Regie had a towel on his head and refused to remove it. His wife pulled the towel, saw the back of his head for the first time and told him he was beautiful. Regie said he felt embarrassed by the bumps on his head and feels uncomfortable around people who think it’s contagious.
When Dr Lee finally had a chance to look at his bumps, she realized it was much more complicated than she had anticipated. After the analysis, she told the couple that it was, “beyond my ability.” The couple was heartbroken as said it was like hitting the end of the road and they didn’t know what else to do. Will Dr Lee turn the couple away? Not really!
In the next episode, we will see another doctor who Dr Lee probably feels is better skilled to do the operation is specially summoned to help this couple out. But even after that would it be possible to get rid of his bumps that have spread around half of his head? Well, we can hope for the best. Catch ‘Dr Pimple Popper’ next Monday as Dr Lee changes people’s lives using her scissors and knives. From the most giant pile of cyst that would pop all over her office to giving one of her biggest fans a pop that would change her life.
