'Dr Pimple Popper': Dr Lee helps Angela regain confidence by removing huge head bumps
TLC's 'Dr Pimple Popper' shows people with worse skin conditions and lifestyles and the pain they go through in their daily lives. But with the help of Dr Sandra Lee, many people dealing with skin conditions are gaining their confidence back.
In Episode 8 of 'Dr Pimple Popper' Season 7, two patients with different problems approached Dr Sandra Lee with the hope of getting the perfect solution and permanent relief from their skin problems. One of the patients, Angela had four bumps on her head which forced her to remain indoors and not hang out with family members. In addition, Angela lost her self-confidence and self-love so much so that she avoided seeing her lousy appearance in front of the mirror. Besides Angela, Robert was facing issues with keloids on the back of his head and ear. The keloid scar appeared three times larger even after treatment, and Robert could not find a solution to it.
Angela, who was accompanied by her daughter, was quite emotional during the show. Although her lumps initially confused Dr Lee, the latter guessed it to be some sort of pilar cysts. Upon operating on the lumps, Dr Lee realized that it was indeed pilar cysts as when she sliced open them into two, she saw the liquid, puss and mass just like pillar cysts.
For those who are unaware of pilar cysts, also called epidermoid cysts, occur when a hair follicle gets clogged. They can happen anywhere in the body but are most common on the scalp. Pilar cysts can be irritating but are usually not dangerous to your health. Dr Lee asked Angela about her past medical history and if she had visited any doctor or not. It was shocking to hear that every doctor Angela saw told her that they were nothing and won't cause her any trouble. Dr Lee confronted that she will surely give her best to remove them, but she was not sure whether it would act as a permanent solution or not.
Dr Lee successfully operates on Angela's head and gifts her the confidence to enjoy and spend time with her family members. Earlier because of these lumps, she escaped from every get-together and chose to take care of the children rather than sitting with others as the lumps made her feel uncomfortable around people.
As soon as the episode ended fans thronged social media to share their thoughts and opinions about the show. A fan tweeted,"Angela needs a group hug by all us poppers. Mental health is just as important as physical health. I am glad @SandraLeeMD is understanding and compassionate about mental health when it comes to these physical issues. #DrPimplePopper." Another fan called the show 'insane',"This show Dr. Pimple Popper on TLC is insane."
