The Doctors: 30-Year-Old Cyst Drained
The Doctors kicked off their September 30 show with viral videos and guest co-host dermatologist Dr Sonia Batra. Instead of easing into the worst ones, they dove straight into their video collection with one of a 30-year-old cyst being drained. Dr Batra explained that it likely wasn’t actually done at a dermatologist’s office because they would have numbed the area first, but the long line of oozing white “gunk” for a lack of a better word, was nonetheless shocking. She explained that it was actually impacted keratin that has been there for 30 years, which means it likely smells incredibly rotten as well.
Dr Batra also wanted everyone to know that if you have a bump on your skin, you shouldn’t try to take care of it yourself. It might not be a cyst. It could be a tumor and even if it is a cyst, just squeezing the keratin out will only temporarily take care of the problem.
