Dr Sandra Lee, better known as Dr Pimple Popper has released a new video of herself draining a 50 year old cyst and is it ever disgusting as tons of solid grey pus comes out of it. Why in the world anyone would allow a cyst to grow for that long is beyond me.
Dr Pimple Popper’s latest stomach-churning video features a cyst that resembles a baby’s face.
This may sound cute, but when it’s sliced open and a lava of thick deep grey pus oozes out, it’s anything but.
The dermatologist, whose real name is Dr Sandra Lee, found out from the unnamed patient that he’s had the epidermoid cyst since he was five.
‘This is some old skin under here then. It’s just been slowly growing with you,’ she said. ‘It’s a 50-year-old cyst!’
The doctor began the procedure by using a scalpel to draw a neat line down the centre of the massive lump.
She then used a wad of gauze to soak up the ‘cheesy’ fluid that came spilling.
This content was made up of ‘macerated keratin’ – or wet skin cells – which creates this consistency and pungent odour.
As the pus flowed out, Dr Lee, in her usual effervescent style, compared it to chocolate pudding. She said: ‘It’s no longer vanilla!’
After squeezing out the dark liquid, she spends around 35 minutes digging out more gunk from the cyst, before neatly stitching up the incision.
An epidermoid cyst may have no symptoms and are typically harmless, Dr Lee notes in the video’s caption.
She explains that people seek removal because they don’t like the appearance of these bumps, or the cyst has ruptured or been inflamed or ‘infected’.
Indeed, the patient revealed that he had suffered trauma to the area – from his uncle’s bull.
