Dr. Sandra Lee considers a girl’s odd skin problem in this SPECIAL sneak peek of ‘Dr. Pimple Popper.’ The lady has bumps throughout components of her body, and also she intends to learn why.
Dr. Pimple Popper is back for period 3 and also tackling brand-new clients with uncommon skin problem. HollywoodLife has an UNIQUE sneak peek of the Jan. 11 episode that includes a girl called Natalie, that has bumps throughout her limbs. “I’m so glad that Natalie made her trip from Atlanta. I was able to speak with her via video conference, which gave me some ideas about her condition,” Dr. Sandra Lee describes.
Three months previously, Natalie had actually disclosed to Dr. Lee that the itching drew back in university, mainly in the evening. Natalie claims it was a “deep nonstop” impulse and also was identified with prurigo nodularis. She has actually been in person with lots of skin specialists however absolutely nothing has actually aided.
Dr. Sandra Lee is figured out to obtain to the base of what’s incorrect with Natalie. “Natalie is right. She does have prurigo nodularis, but that is a very nonspecific skin condition,” Dr. Sandra Lee claims. “It’s really a descriptive term. It just really means that you’ve been scratching or picking at some area chronically and causing the skin to thicken in the area.”
Natalie’s had actually a biopsy done, so Dr. Lee has almost all the info she requires to make a medical diagnosis. “The pattern of Natalie’s skin condition, her biopsy results, and also the fact that she’s been itching a lot more at night really give me clues as to her diagnosis,” Dr. Lee notes.
When Dr. Lee takes a better look, she sees that the bumps are flawlessly spaced. “Something that I’m noticing is the distribution of the bumps,” she claims. “Why do you not see them on her back, but you see it on her arms and her legs and her torso?”
Dr. Lee thinks there’s truly just one alternative left — Natalie’s skin problem could be self-induced. “If you didn’t scratch at these areas, do you think they would not appear?” Dr. Lee asks Natalie. Dr. Pimple Popper airs Mondays at 9 p.m. on Tender Loving Care.
