A woman’s mysterious skin condition has left her in extreme pain after it grew across her stomach and back five years ago.
She’s currently a patient on Dr Pimple Popper, which follows cosmetic surgeon and dermatologist Dr Sandra Lee as she helps patients throughout America, including a lady with maggots in her toes and a man with 400 tumours on his entire body this season.
Previously, the show followed someone with a “third boob” on their shoulder, a sad grandfather with a “plum sized nose,” and a woman who had a bit of lead trapped in her hand for 45 years.
‘Some of the skin just starts cracking,’ Dr Lee’s latest patient begins in a preview clip.
‘It is very itchy. I do get these feelings of a rubber band going around me, and it’s extremely painful.’
She goes on: ‘This condition started about four and a half to five years ago.
‘When I first noticed it, it was probably about this on my side, and it was painful.
‘And then, over a month, it seemed to be getting bigger.
‘I decided to go to the doctor and I was told it was adhesions.’
She then explains: ‘Adhesions are when you cut yourself or you have surgery, scar tissue forms under your skin.
‘I’ve had a complete hysterectomy and two hernia surgeries, but it just kept growing.
‘I knew it couldn’t be adhesions.’
This comes after an eight-year-old girl revealed the everyday challenges and agony she has had as a result of her own skin problem.
‘I have this horrible skin condition,’ Wynter says, before revealing it started when she was just six months old.
Her mum then explains: ‘She had a rash that popped up on her inner thigh that was the size of a quarter.
‘It started to spread like all through her legs, and its predominantly now on her arms.’
Wynter’s mum took her to see ‘a few different doctors’ since she was a young age, revealing she has been diagnosed with ‘psoriasis, eczema and scabies’.
‘It’s very itchy,’ Wynter adds.
She says: ‘It’s worse when I wear polyester or wool, it gets better with lotion or when I take showers, because it clears it up.’
Dr Pimple Popper airs on TLC in America.
