If you’ve ever seen a Dr. Pimple Popper episode before, it’s clear that dermatologist Sandra Lee, MD, truly cares about her patients and their wellbeing—and apparently, that compassion extends past a patient’s visit.
In the most recent airing of Dr. Pimple Popper, the dermatologist paid special tribute to a patient who recently passed away.
The woman, Brittney Denise Sharp, who reportedly died on May 2, 2019, was featured on season two, episode nine of Dr. Pimple Popper. Dr. Lee helped Brittney, 31, with large wart-like bumps that she had all over her body that appeared after she got pregnant with her daughter.
“Pregnancy can do that to us; our skin can go whacko,” Dr. Lee told her during her consult.
Brittney told Dr. Lee she’d tried everything to get rid of the bumps: “I’ve tried plenty of home remedies—tea bags, tying rubber bands around the big ones to try and cut the circulation off—but nothing works,” she said in the episode. She had been struggling with the bumps for a long time—some as many as 11 years—and had never been able to find a doctor who could help her.
Because of that, Brittney wasn’t even sure Dr. Lee could help her, but she still sought Dr. Lee’s help because she was engaged to be married and wanted to try to get rid of the bumps before her wedding.
“When I feel these bumps, they’re a little rubbery,” Dr. Lee said when she examined Brittney’s bumps. “They’re flexible and spongy. You can feel when you push them into the skin and they bounce back out.” Eventually, Dr. Lee was able to help Brittney remove the bumps.
