‘Dr Pimple Popper’: Reginald’s ginger-like cyst sees Dr Sandra and Dr Sanusi join forces, will they succeed?
The pimple-popping expert who has treated complicated lipomas and cysts felt this was beyond her ability to treat the man and called in Dr Sanusi Umar to help
Reginald, who has a massive ginger-like grainy cyst all over the back of his head, came to see Dr Sandra Lee along with his wife, Karla, on the December 28 episode of 'Dr Pimple Popper'. Karla is his biggest advocate and she was the one to convince 51-year-old Regi to see the doctor after he had given up all hope.
Sadly, the pimple popping expert who has treated complicated lipomas and cysts felt that it was beyond her ability to treat the man but didn’t have the heart to turn them away. After further studying, she found out that Reginald had acne keloidalis nuchae. She decided to enlist the help of fellow board-certified dermatologist Dr Sanusi Umar, a hair transplant specialist in Manhattan Beach, California.
Finally, after a lot of consultation, Reginald was given some local anesthesia and laid in the prone position ready to start the case. It would be great to see the man get rid of the biggest source of his pain.
Next, we have Che’re who has a compressible bump on her cheek, something that is unlike the lipoma and cyst cases that we usually see Dr Lee handling. We wonder what that is and can’t wait for Dr Lee to cut it open and find out. Che’re's bump on her cheek is impossible to hide and is a big source of embarrassment for her.
Dear old Juan has a little cyst on his face, a big lump on the back of his shoulder and a huge lump on the back of his head. Juan confessed that when he got affected it felt like a thousand bees stung him at the same spot. “He was a lot of work,” says Dr Lee on her Instagram IG story as she discussed each case with her Instagram followers.
This season will also include cases that are especially painful like pus-filled bumps all over a patient’s body and neck. The cases include a patient who has three large lumps on his head, a young lady who sweats so much she feels she can fill up a whole milk jug with her sweat, a person with a sagging heavy earlobe and a mysterious case who refused to talk about his condition or show the camera what was under his head for that matter till he had seen Dr Lee.
The new season of 'Dr Pimple Popper' was shot during the pandemic and maximum precautions were taken. Dr Lee interacted with her patients outside in the open where sitting arrangements were made with a distance of more than 6 feet so that she can talk to her patients comfortably without a mask. Everyone would put their masks back on as the doctor would come to examine them.
Catch new episodes of 'Dr Pimple Popper’ on Mondays at 9 pm ET/PT.
