Dr Pimple Popper: Meet Reginald

During season 5 episode 1, in Upland, California, Dr Pimple Popper meets Reginald and his wife.

Explaining his experiences with other doctors, Reggie said that his wife encouraged him to go to Dr Pimple Popper: “One doctor shot me with shots of radiation or steroids and after that they just took off“.

He then decided to leave it alone for a while. Reggie’s wife also said that he was made to feel like a “guinea pig” by some doctors.

After inspecting Reggie’s head, Dr Pimple Popper said that she’d never taken on something so extensive.

She said that he had acne keloidalis nuchae as well as inflammation, pus and oozing. Reggie also had cutis verticis gyratum on his head.

Examining Reggie up close, Dr Pimple Popper said that Reggie’s condition was a lot more complex than she first thought.

Dr Lee then said that the case may have been beyond her ability and proceeded to call her colleague, Dr Sanusi Umar, for help.

Expert in the field, Dr Umar agreed to help Reggie with his condition and Dr Pimple Popper said she’d been there during the operation to oversee the treatment.

Another said: “Reggie’s keloid mass gone in one swoop.”

Others tweeted: “So insanely happy for Reggie” and that Reggie’s wife was “amazing” and “the sweetest“.
