Rapper Rouge Lands In Hospital: All The Reasons To Avoid Popping Pimples


“Avoid pimple popping in the facial especially forehead region,” local rapper Rouge tells her fans on Instagram following her hospitalisation.

The Mbongo Zaka hitmaker landed in the emergency room following a skin infection that resulted from popping a pimple.

“Popping a pimple and not cleaning it properly landed me straight in the emergency room,” she  wrote on Instagram.

Apparently, her case was so bad that doctors had to admit her for an emergency drainage to avoid further damage. Even more disturbing is the fact that she had to endure the procedure without any anesthesia. That must have hurt like hell…

“I had to have an emergency drainage to avoid meningitis. Without anaesthesia. So you can imagine the excruciating pain I was in.”

However, we only got a picture of her hand as the rapper couldn’t share her present facial appearance. She has her reasons though.

“I would post a picture of my face but it’s quite unrecognisable right now. But just so you get an idea, both my eyes are swollen to the point I can barely see what I’m typing. Please be aware, avoid pimple popping in the facial especially forehead region,” Rouge added to the lengthy post.

Whoever thought that popping a pimple could be this disastrous… Get well soon!

Rouge’s body has really gone through a lot as her face and body were left black and blue after being violently assaulted during a hijacking that took place last year.

Rouge’s management confirmed the attack saying; she was attacked while travelling home from a gig during the early hours of the morning.

“Rouge was on the way home from a gig at Cantare, a venue at Montecasino this morning. The attack happened at around 1am in Kyalami, Johannesburg,” read a part of the statement.
