  • In Dr. Pimple Popper's new Instagram video, she helps a patient with a pilar cyst in an unusual location.

  • The cyst, which usually appear on the scalp, grew on her patient's back.

  • Dr. Pimple Popper uses her typical popping strategy to get the whole "macaroni" pilar cyst out successfully.

A pilar cyst is a flesh-colored bump that can show up on your skin. Why does this matter? Because dermatologist Sandra Lee, MD,. a.k.a. Dr. Pimple Popper, just tackled a ginormous one—on a patient’s back.

This pilar cyst is the subject of a new Instagram video from Dr. Pimple Popper. The post has a sensitive content warning, so you know it’s going to be good. It's no ordinary cyst, either. The doc makes sure you know that right off the bat.

“Unusual to see a pilar cyst on the back! Most occur on the scalp #drpimplepopper #SLMDskincare,” the doctor wrote simply in the caption. Okaaay.

Well, click through that sensitive content warning, and you’re in for an intense viewing experience. TBH, the cyst looks kind of meh from the outside. It’s a bump you can see on the patient’s back, but it doesn’t look gross or anything. And then the doctor starts getting in there.

Cut to the next shot, and you can see Dr. Pimple Popper with her tweezers gripping a massive ball of yellowish hardened goo that kinda looks like Play-Doh. “I love it when we get pilar cysts on the body!” she can be heard saying, as she pulls out the gunk.

The doctor takes a moment to do something off camera, before coming back with her tweezers. And OMG, what happens next is ridiculous. She causally reaches into the cyst and pulls out a hardened, floppy mass of pus that’s at least as wide as a quarter. It kinda "looks like a macaroni shell," per one fan, but much thicker and way more gross. "

The video then replays the moment in slow motion because you do not want to miss this. “It makes a good video—pops right out!” the doctor says.

People were here for it in the comments. “That slow mo pop at the end!🙌” one wrote. “That last pull is like when you sneeze and snot comes out...” another said.
