A gross video by Dr Pimple Popper, real name Sandra Lee MD, has left people feeling sick as she shows how she dealt with a smelly cyst full of grey fluid.
In the TikTok clip, uploaded on her official @drpimplepopper account on July 4, the medic shows a so-called "baby-faced cyst" that is large and lumpy but otherwise looks pretty normal.
But as she slices into it with her scalpal, the cyst unleashes a nasty surprise.
A never-ending stream of greyish-brown fluid comes gushing out of the incision wound like a river that has burst free from a dam.
Dr Lee admits the liquid stinks and she is trying not to inhale.
The TV surgeon starts trying to mop it up with tissues but the festering cyst is still raining down more liquid and it is a race against time to mop it all up before it spreads and goes everywhere.
She said it was an epidermoid cyst and its contents were not actually pus but a paste of mushy skin cells – which still sounds gross.
Dr Lee previously explained: "Epidermoid cysts result from the reproduction of epidermal cells within a confined space of the dermis.

"The pasty contents are mostly composed of macerated keratin (wet skin cells), which creates this 'cheesy' consistency, and there can be a pungent odour."
Dr Lee adds: "Usually people seek removal because they don’t like the appearance of these bumps, or the cyst has ruptured or been inflamed or 'infected' in the past.
"Rupture is associated with sudden redness, pain, swelling, and local heat, and can lead to abscess formation.
"Also, a history of inflammation often increases scar tissue in the area, makes the cyst more firmly adherent to surrounding skin, and makes it more difficult to remove."
This comes after Dr Pimple Popper found something that was "not an earring" stuck inside an earlobe.
