When it comes to getting rid of a pesky zit or an annoying blackhead, you’ve got options. Though the right facial cleanser or an acne patch are gentler ways of saying goodbye to a pimple, the very best of all is a satisfyingly juicy pop. This should not happen with cysts.
As her name would imply, Dr. Pimple Popper has turned this into an art form. The popularity of her amazing popping videos has led to several Instagram accounts, YouTube channels, and one-off popping footage, as well as her own TLC show.

One of those videos is from an Instagram account called @PimplePoppingAddicts, which is responsible for this disturbingly ripe cyst explosion. Keyword here: disturbing! Everyone involved seems horrified with this man’s popping cheek cyst to the point that spectators gag aloud. You can check out this full video on the aptly-named PoppingPimple.com, but be warned, it’s horrifying.
That absolutely requires a doctor’s attention. Pimples don’t tend to be that large, hard, or full, so if your pimple is causing you that much pain, it’s easier for everyone involved if you head to a professional.
When it comes to cysts, a dermatologist’s advice is absolutely necessary. You might not be a skilled dermatologist. If you’re not seeing an expert and if the condition persists, pain is severe, or if you notice any signs of an infection, head to a doctor.
