What is a pore of winer?

A dilated pore of winer is a non-cancerous tumor of a hair follicle or sweat gland in the skin.

It looks like a large blackhead, but is a different kind of skin lesion, and is trapped under the skin with dirt and debris.

And if you’re wondering how it got its name, Dr Louis H Winer first described the skin pore in 1954, which is where ‘winer’ comes from.

The skin tumor usually affects older adults, according to Heathline.

Dr Pimple Popper, the series fronted by Dr Sandra Lee, has showcased some impressive pore of winers in its time.

She recently posted a pore of winer video on her Instagram page, which seemed to be non-stop while she squeezed it.

As it is stuffed very deep in the skin, Dr Sandra Lee squeezes until it’s empty, before popping another blackhead on another patient’s ear.

 She uses a comedone extractor tool to get rid of the skin lesion.

Dr Sandra Lee described one patient as having “the award for the biggest blackheads”, who had two large, rock-hard dilated pore of winers.

The episode aired in December 2020, with the TLC doctor adding that the patient is “going to lose a little weight” due to the spot removal!

She also said that their clothes are going to fit a little better now, while trying to extract the pore of winer – which took some time to remove.
