Karen one of the three patients from the premiere episode has lived with painful, scaly feet for 23 years. She consulted several doctors for respite from her skin condition and was often prescribed topical creams and ointments, but none of them helped her much.

After carefully examining Karen's leg and running a couple of tests, Dr Lee narrowed down her diagnosis to dyshidrosis or palmoplantar psoriasis. To get the final confirmation, Dr Lee reached out to her fellow dermatologist/ 'derm nerd' Dr Curtis Asbury and asked his opinion on it. Dr Asbury confirmed that it was palmoplantar psoriasis after taking a look at the pictures shared by Dr Lee with him. Palmoplantar psoriasis is a variant of psoriasis that characteristically affects the skin of the palms and soles. After zeroing in on the diagnosis, Dr Lee went to Karen to give her the diagnosis that alluded several doctors for 23 long years.

When Karen learned her diagnosis and saw the picture of it in a medical textbook, she heaved a huge sigh of relief and began feeling hopeful about her situation. Dr Lee too assured her that her scaly and painful feet would get some respite once she begins her treatment. Instead of putting her on the topical medication treatment, Dr Lee prescribed her a dose of oral medicine called acitretin and assured her that she would begin to see results within a month, and it would take some time for a visible difference to be noticed. Karen was thrilled on hearing Dr Lee's treatment plan and felt that a couple of months of waiting for her treatment was nothing in comparison to the 23 long years she lived in pain without a proper diagnosis. We will have to wait and watch to see if the medication helped with Karen's leg.

'Dr Pimple Popper' Season 7 airs every Wednesday at 9/8c on TLC.
