'Dr Pimple Popper' Preview: Can drag queen Tameru get rid of the cysts hampering his life?
Do you think Dr Lee will be able to help Tameru out
Even a small pimple or blemish on the skin can become reason enough for people to lose their confidence and avoid society? Everyone takes pride in their appearance, but TLC's 'Dr Pimple Popper' will show how people affected by skin conditions, go through misery and hell but bounce back once they get a helping hand.
'Dr Pimple Popper' Season 7 is again back with Dr Sandra Lee, who is armed with her tweezers to tackle some of the most challenging skin problems. In Episode 5 of the show, Dr Lee will be taking on the case of Tameru, a drag queen. He has a myriad of cysts that are the real drag. Next up is Devon who has uneven skin which she thinks may be the result of a hysterectomy a decade ago and lastly, Dr Lee will be attending Amy who has large growths all over her head that make her look like a "hot mess."
Tameru began getting the cysts when puberty hit him. Although being a drag queen, he is good at hiding much about his appearance, but not this time. He wants the cysts gone once and for all. After a closer look at his cysts, Dr Lee finds out they are Steatocystomas. For those who are unaware, Steatocystomas is a skin disorder characterized by the development of multiple noncancerous (benign) cysts. These growths begin in the skin's sebaceous glands, which usually produce an oily substance called sebum that lubricates the skin and hair. Steatocystomas are filled with sebum. According to experts, steatocystomas typically first appear during adolescence and are found most often on the torso, neck, upper arms, and upper legs. These cysts are the only symptom. However, some might also see abnormalities on the teeth, fingernails and toenails.
Dr Lee says it is tough to get these out because it takes a lot of squeezing the muscles, but Dr Lee also ensures that she will be trying her best to remove these cysts from his body and return Tameru his killer confidence. So do you think Dr Lee will be able to help Tameru out? For this, you have to watch 'Dr Pimple Popper'.
'Dr Pimple Popper' airs every Wednesday on TLC at 8 pm ET.
