Since I’ve been in Taipei I’ve noticed some people with skin conditions that makes their skin look scaly and dry. While I’ve been in Taipei on and off for 4 months now I’ve always stayed at the same hostel and never had any issues. About a week ago I decided to try out a new place just to get a change of scenery. Within this short period of time I’ve noticed two little splotches of the dry scaly skin. Therefore, the hypochondriac that I am is in full action.
At the moment I’m inclined to believe the source of this might be the water supply based on history and how wide spread I’ve seen the issue. As someone who suffered from psoriasis, I knew it’s not that. Therefore I’m looking for any insights as to what this skin condition might be that plague so many in Taiwan.
