Podiatrist Going Viral For Posting Video of Fungal-Infected Toenail Being Removed

People on the internet have proven that they secretly love watching gross things. There is a fairly large audience out there that get a strange satisfaction out of seeing things ooze and drip. Dr. Sandra Lee, also known as Dr. Pimple Popper. Now, a new star is on the rise: Miss Foot Fixer.

Lee found fame when she began posting clips of her run-of-the-mill office work. She is a dermatologist who has racked up hundreds of millions of YouTube views.

Fans just love watching her pop pimples, remove blackheads and drain cysts. Her show became so popular on YouTube that she now has her own TLC show, as well as her own skin care line.

Dr. Pimple Popper is now sharing the spotlight, because a new gross YouTube sensation is beginning to take social media by storm: Miss Foot Fixer, a podiatrist by the name of Miss Marion Yau.

She works at the Harley Street Foot And Nail Clinic in London, and she, too, has found that millions of people on YouTube have an inexplicable obsession to watch gross videos.

Yau has been fixing feet for over 10 years now and has been featured in a number of magazines. She's had the honor of treating athletes from Great Britain's Olympic teams. She's now taking YouTube by storm posting videos of her removing fungus-infected toenails.

She's only been on YouTube a few months, but already she's gotten views in the triple digits for some of her videos. Her most popular video to date is one in which she removes a toenail with Acute Paronychia, a fungal nail disease that forms at the cuticle.

As she snips away the nail and finally removes it, a spring of oozing pus from the two below breaks free.

"I was pretty excited because I knew that there was something underneath the nail but was very surprised that there was so much pus coming out," she explains.

Some people find Yau's videos too disturbing to watch. Having your painful, fungus-encrusted toenail ripped away looks like agony, but the foot professional says it's not as bad as it looks. "They would have felt a little bit of pressure but not much pain and the treatment took around 20 minutes," she explains. This was the first case that I have seen this large amount of pus."

The treatment turned out to be a success, Miss Foot Fixer said. "We needed to cut the nail back to see where the puss can be released and at the same time I remove as much of the fungus as possible," she explains. "But it healed very well."

For some people, Yau’s videos are even more difficult to watch than the pimple popping, earwax sucking, cyst-draining clips that get millions of views per day on YouTube, but for those who are really fascinated by gross procedures, the Foot Fixer is a dream come true.

In addition to toenail fungus you can watch Yau remove deep corns, cut away heavy callouses or remove foot warts. It is a whole new level of satisfying for people who like to see unsightly medical problems treated and cleaned up by a professional.
