Tiffany’s incredible drama to Dr Mercy: shock news for her, what happened
The disease she was suffering from Tiffany it was called hidradenitis supporativa – the same one that the famous Dr. Pimple Popper had treated with Jesse. As described by the Nigerian dermatologist in front of the cameras of the program, it is an inflammation of the hair follicle that can cause loss of pus and pain to the point of compromising the life of those who suffer from it. “It’s quite disabling”, the doctor said.

Not only for about three years she was no longer able to work because of her severe pain, but she also told of spending whole days at home completely lying on the sofa. In short, this was a real drama!
“You are one of the most serious cases I’ve ever seen”, Dr Mercy said as soon as she saw the lump that formed on Tiffany’s lower back.
