Sandra Lee, MD (aka Dr. Pimple Popper) just posted a new video on Instagram to tease the season finale of her TLC show, and never has a video elicited so many puking emojis in the Women’s Health offices.
The video features a man called Leonard talking about the huge pimple (a serious understatement) on his left shoulder that he calls “Chip.” Dr. Lee captioned the video “One of my CRAZIEST cases EVER!!” and boy, she’s not kidding.
Leonard says the growth—which started about 10 years ago after he got a scratch on the arm while trimming bushes—weighs about 3 pounds and 11 grams, and is slowly dropping down to his upper arm.
“It used to be solid, almost like a baseball,” he says. Now, “it’s nasty inside” and people don’t want to be around him because of the smell, which he admits makes it hard for him to eat. He eloquently describes the odor as “like 10 dead rats crawling out of a dead ass.” Hence, the puking emojis.
I’m warning you, even if you’re a fan of pimple popping videos (guilty!) this is EXTREME.

Leonard says the puss has gone from yellow to green to grey-green. Discolored puss can often be a sign of infection, according to information from the American Academy of Family Physicians. He notes that his skin has been ripping as the growth has gotten bigger and now it feels like “someone has two pairs of pliers on my skin pulling it apart slowly.” Ouch! In a video clip from the show, Dr. Lee says she’s never seen anything like it, and that she thinks it could be something “much more dangerous.”
I’m no doctor but it’s clear that Leonard is dealing with more than your average pimple. Here’s hoping Dr. Pimple Popper can help him find some relief! The episode airs tonight at 9/8c on TLC.
