Why Do Many Hong Kong People Get Eczema? [Case Study]

Unlike other posts I write, this will specifically analyze why Hong Kong in particular is a breeding ground for eczema victims.

It is well-known that allergic diseases are highly common in the Hong Kong population i.e. eczema, food allergies, hay fever, and asthma – AKA the Atopic March.

A first-ever nation-wide research in 2016 also shows the prevalence of eczema is rising in most parts of China, including Hong Kong, where eczema is catching up with developed nations like the UK, known for its notoriously high rates of eczema.

But what exactly is causing the surge of eczema?

Here I analyze on dietary habits, stress, exercise, sleep, and environmental factors of Hong Kong people. Finally, typical local mindsets and misconceptions of eczema.

Note: Even if you do not come from Hong Kong, I’m sure the examples will give you a heads up on what to watch out for! Continue reading Why Do Many Hong Kong People Get Eczema? [Case Study]

Why Does My Eczema Not Go Away? [Explained]

WHY DOES MY ECZEMA NOT GO AWAY?The biggest challenge to treating eczema is NOT the lack of a solution, but the lack of discipline and motivation to keep pushing.

We often dive into a superiorly clean diet and get all pumped up but eventually lose momentum after a few weeks of either hardship or not seeing immediate results.

The question goes: I’m in the diet now, now what? Why isn’t my eczema going away? 

Here are some common challenges I’ve gathered:

  • Why isn’t my eczema healing despite doing the right things?
  • Why does my eczema stay on a plateau even on a correct diet?
  • Why do I get digestive symptoms e.g. constipation, bloating, excessive gas?

5 Easy Ways to Start Your Eczema Recovery Plan NOW!

After having been released from the deep-end of the eczema cycle, I sometimes find it difficult to step back into the shoes of those who are still there (suffering from eczema).

Recently, I talked to a few friends and acquaintances and here’s what I discovered.

  1. They are shocked at how dieting ACTUALLY matters. Even if they’ve tried, most people rarely persist through a fair amount of time to see any recovery.
  2. They believe in most eczema myths. Don’t eat seafood at all because they are pro-allergenic. Drink more water and your skin will become more moist. (These are misleading),
  3. They generally don’t care and don’t plan. This part struck me most. If you know there’s a way out, why are you not giving it a shot? Perhaps they think it’s too good to be true?

Number 3 is my focus today. I want to talk about one of the most challenging aspects of eczema recovery: how to take the first actions to start, and after that, how to further your plan (by having one first).

It seems repetitive to more experienced readers, but I believe this serves everyone as either a fresh or an important reminder to take action.
