Dr. Sandra Lee, also known as Dr. Pimple Popper, has done it again. By "it," I mean she popped a cyst so large, my stomach is turning sideways. But like many of her "popaholic" fans, I am simultaneously disgusted but can't look away — because this cyst pop looks like cookie dough. 

Yes, the forbidden snack of your childhood dreams. Let's watch the video together.

This freshly baked cyst is ready to come out of the oven.

"Good Morning, Popaholics! Let’s get out there and SQUEEZE the day!" Lee wrote on Instagram, as though she was doing something normal, like squeezing oranges to make fresh brunch mimosas. The cyst is cleanly incised with its contents just waiting to spill forth.

Look away — or don't!

Dr. Pimple Popper gently presses down on the cyst; the exudate emerges as though it's waited an eternity to escape Azkaban. It's brownish in color and definitely resembles the texture of raw cookie dough. Never mind that it contains raw eggs; cookie dough as a snack has been ruined forever by this video.


That video above was just the cookie crumbles. On her YouTube channel, Lee takes us deep into the recesses of this abscess, which is located on the nape of the patient's neck. She collects the matter, because the patient had requested to see it afterward, and diagnoses them with an epidermoid cyst. This is a nine-minute video of the procedure, if you dare! 

There's a scientific reason why the cyst matter is brown.

It's melanin! In the video, the patient has darker skin. Pustle and cyst content, called pus (which is arguably the grossest word in the English language), is comprised mainly of dead white blood cells. But it can also contain dead skin cells, and in people who have more pigmented skin, the extra melanin, as well as melanin-producing cells (called melanocytes), can also find its way into cysts. It's just one soupy cellular mess.

People compared it with all kinds of food products.

"Nice!!! It looks like the meat inside a taco......," Twitter user @nikko5170 wrote, seriously ruining my desire to host another taco night with my roommates. Taco Bell? Nope. Next time I stop by the neighborhood taco truck at the subway station, I'm going to remind myself that it's just taco meat, it can't hurt me, it won't ooze out of my skin like in a horror movie....

Popaholics, way to ruin every food we love.

"Normal coloured donner kebab meat," wrote Instagram user @ robdewaldron (not doner!!! What else am I going to eat in Berlin?).

"Brown sugar oatmeal for breakfast," wrote Instagram user @mudflap_babe (please don't come for my grandma's oatmeal).

"Keebler’s fudge filling," wrote Instagram user @lazyboys1 (well, so much for my PMS snack of choice).
