What is rosacea?

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition in Singapore that causes redness, swelling, and sometimes small, pus-filled bumps on the face. 

It typically appears on the cheeks, nose, forehead, and chin, but can also affect the eyes, causing redness, dryness, and sensitivity to light. Rosacea usually starts after the age of 30 and is more common in fair-skinned people.
