  • In a new Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper removes a big, irritated cyst that looks like it’s filled with applesauce.

  • Once punctured, the cyst explodes and squirts yellowish, chunky contents all over Dr. Lee's gloves.

  • The growth is likely an epidermoid cyst, which is filled with skin cells and keratin, and commonly occurs on the face, neck, and back.

In a new Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper—aka dermatologist and TLC host Dr. Sandra Lee, MD—pops a big, irritated cyst that looks like it’s filled with applesauce. And just like applesauce, this disturbing pop is pretty darn sweet.

In the quick clip, Dr. Lee makes a careful incision into the large, angry growth. As soon as the famed derm punctures the mass, it starts to seep yellowish chunky liquid. The goo looks something like applesauce of the most unsavory variety.

With a single forceful squeeze, things get even more disturbing. The “applesauce” inside the cyst squirts all over Dr. Lee’s gloves, leading to an explosive, messy pop.

“That was juicy,” one commenter wrote. Just like a fresh apple that you mashed up a little.

The growth featured in this video is likely an epidermoid cyst. This type of cyst, which is filled with a combination of skin cells and keratin, commonly occurs on the face, neck, and back. Besides often being cosmetically undesirable, epidermoid cysts can be easily irritated and tender, making removal an appealing option. That's likely why this patient decided to axe her little friend.
