Plot Synopsis

WHEN SKIN GOES WRONG is a one-hour reality series that's set in a London-based specialist clinic where four top dermatologists -- Emma McMullen, Dev Shah, Adil Sheraz and Natalia Spierings -- treat a range of conditions. The series opener, "People Like Pus," Amanda undergoes surgery for a lipoma; Gary has lipomas all over his arm; a procedure on some cysts causes flying debris; a patient struggles with abscesses; MMaressa has developed a grey lump on her face; and Joanne tried to remove her head cyst herself. After debuting with the title PEOPLE LIKE PUS and later airing as SKIN A&E in the United Kingdom, this series had its U.S. premiere on Thursday, November 19, 2020 at 10pm ET/PT on TLC, using WHEN SKIN GOES WRONG for the series title.
On Thursday, December 3, 2020 at 10pm ET/PT, TLC premiered "Totally Abscessed!," the season finale of WHEN SKIN GOES WRONG. A patient struggles with neurofibromatosis -- small jelly-filled sacs that arise over his nerves. Two lipoma sufferers are desperate for help, but one worries about a scar. Also, a patient comes in with a head cyst that's been growing for 15 years.
