Who is Tyler in 'Dr Pimple Popper'?
Tyler's hands are always in pain. He described his suffering as "so excruciating" that he wishes he might sever his hands rather than have them for another second.
Dry, flaky skin can be exceedingly irritating, even painful. Thankfully, a heavy-duty moisturizer or body oil can give some relief from this bothersome skin condition. But Tamyra, an old Dr. Lee patient, had to resort to a knife and sandpaper to get rid of her dry, flaky skin. She also had what Tyler has. Tamyra said in her introduction that she has an acute dry skin disease that causes the skin on her arms and hands to look like "fish scales" but feel like "reptile skin." Tamyra sought aid from Dr Lee to alleviate the persistent strain and anguish produced by her skin disease, ichthyosis vulgaris.
Her skin problem also caused deformed fingerprints that could not be read. Tamyra became tearful as she described how it was 'exhausting' for her to take care of herself on a regular basis. However, it was Dr Lee who ultimately assisted her by putting an end to her torment.
What happened to Tyler in 'Dr Pimple Popper'?
While at Dr Lee's office, she noticed how Tyler absent-mindedly kept rubbing his hands together. "That's a big no-no," according to Dr Lee. She instantly asks him to stop doing that. "Stop touching," she yells. Tyler seemed 'frustrated' as he talks to the TLC cameras about his skin condition.

Tyler claimed that his hands were sliced up like sandpaper. He adds that his minor cuts feel like "paper cuts," but the larger ones feel like "knife cuts." He stated that because he can't completely close his hands without risking breaking and splitting, even everyday activities like using the loo are difficult for him to do. Furthermore, he told Dr Lee that after trying everything, he uses three 80 oz. bottles of cream every week.
Dr Lee discovered the source of Tyler's rash after a thorough examination. Tyler was struggling because his hands were so dry that you could see holes in them every time he scratched. Even moisturizer couldn't help him. Tyler had given up hope, but not completely, since he opted to seek help from TLC's miracle doctor, Dr Lee. She stated that his rubber gloves aggravated the situation. Dr Lee reminded Tyler of the importance of adhering to the protocol. It's just going to become worse if he doesn't stop scratching.
Tyler was forced to chuck away his entire pharmacy of skin potions and rubber gloves and commit to the procedure. Tyler's eczema was under control thanks to Dr Lee's assistance. Tyler's hand was revealed to be in much better condition at his update after a few months, where he could be seen carving into his own steak.
