    What the man said at the end summed up my thoughts in general. We as black people can give businesses/companies the almighty, black dollar and they'll be almost instantly successful. NOW (we should've been doing this) we need to have standards to our black dollar and not just spend money at any ole regular shemegular place/product ✊🏽

      I grew up with eczema but my mother stayed on their butts. If one thing didn't work she told them and refused to let them give it to her. She was checking them so much they started calling her doctor. As an adult now I've grown out of eczema. Doctors always to try to people with eczema to not bathe as much...that's BS. You can't put topical medicine over dirty skin. As a child I didn't miss a day in the tub.

          Research what u use before applying it to ur body, most products are full of alcohol which dries out the skin. Start washing ya ass more frequently and apply oils that benefit your body. Drink more water stop drinking wine and doing shots all day. The end.

            This documentary was slightly racist. Sense when is dry skin or eczema a black issue. And the reason vitiligo isn’t covered that much is because not many people have it. That is still rare. This is what victim hood to the max.

              @soraya .e This is not one of those times. They are not displaying the idea that they are better than white people, or that white people are beneath them; or any form of hatred. They want to be heard and believe they've been overlooked. Whether you agree or feel they are self-vitmizing is one thing but it's not racist.

              Lindamorena any race can be racist and just because higher amounts of eczema is found in black people still does not make it only specified for black. Higher amounts of breast cancer are seen in white women but it’s not known as a white women issue now is it.... this is just another case of black people constantly using race for everything it’s sad at this point.

              That's not what racist means. Also black people on a whole have dryer skin and therefore higher rates of eczema. Its factually proven.

                  Yikes yes it is white owned. She uses the face of BP. This is why we can’t win. We should refuse doing work for these people. Do you think an Asian company would allow us to make their products and an Asian be a face of the company? Nope!

                I am all for more comprehensive skin care training in dermatologists which better adresses the needs of different skin types, but in a world where more people are of mixed heritages than purely italian, mexican, african, east asian or northern european I am not comfortable with a narrative that promotes further segregation.

                  Further segregation? Who cares what you're comfortable with. Why is it a problem for black people to want to be treated by professionals that look like them. A white person will choose A doctor that looks like them first. A fact is a fact. There are medical issues that are specific to black people. Our bodies, skin, etc are different than other people. If you're mixed with black, you're black. African is the dominate gene. Period. Get over it. We are different and should be treated as such. The type of breast cancer that rapidly effects black women is only seen in black women. You have medical doctors that still believe that back people have a higher pain tolerance than other groups of people. Black women are dying in child birth at a overwhelming rate than white women. Check yourself and go read.

                    I took medication that destroyed the melanin in my skin. It is called Steven-Johnson Syndrome. Allergic reaction. Black people beware these medications focus on genetic formulations target melanin! It is by design! The chemicals that we put in our hair is messing, killing us too!

                          Celestial Burgette rabat just crap. Food is food regardless. We as humans are meant to eat healthy food that will help us. I have eczema and it flares up very rarely. Like right now it’s because of accutane.

                          Did you watch the video before commenting? It said that eczema effects Black people are higher rates and because they often are not treated for eczema properly, it can effect them worse than then their non-Black counterparts.

                          The reason you don’t get help with this is because of US POLITICS! if you had chosen a president that wants medicare for ALL like all countries in the rest of the world you would get help. The USA is the only country in the world that doesn’t negotiate with the medicine corporations so you end up paying ten times more (!) yes it’s true, than f.ex Canada or Europe. And your country allows the medicine corporations to lobby the politicians. Your whole system is corrupt. And as soon as a pres. candidate like Sanders try to do something about it then you label them as communists and left-wingers. So, after all, it is partially your own fault. A little bit of socialism is actually a good thing. But in the end you are so afraid of paying a little bit more taxes so everyone is being taken care of. In my country, Norway, helt care is a human right. In your country it's not.

                            Le Bêbeve no, it's more a different way of looking at life. We think more one for all and all for one. We are more socialistic. If you are so rich that you have to pay 75 % you still have more money than you manage to spend. Less greed here.

                            Ole Dahl wow. There are Americans who actually pay 40 to 50 percent of their earnings to the government and they aren’t even rich. But that’s pretty interesting that around Europe it’s 30 percent. In many khaleeji areas (gulf Arab countries like UAE) you don’t lay any taxes which I love that so much. But in Europe the 75 percent is a lot to pay in taxes. It’s like your working so hard and get to keep only one fourth which is a bit disheartening. Maybe that’s why a lot of wealthy people hide their money in the Cayman Islands or St Lucia. 😂

                            Le Bêbeve I agree with you. I do believe they care about the rich people though. But you don't pay much taxes. 30% of your total income is a minimum all over Europe. If you're really rich you could pay up to 75%.

                            No i think this program is made in america by african Americans so their not excluding other ethnically black people. They are just using those words because they are talking about data based on people that are african american.i think the video implies any one with black genetics in the US iS the demographic. Your not the only one that said this. I see no reason why they had to spell out the fact that they're talking about people who are black in the US no matter where they're born.

                                          because most of those women/girls are 17-24 & are already in college too & also not everyone wants to be a doctor......... the issue is capitalism and institutionalized racism. using IG as a scapegoat is lazy. black people with college degrees are twice as likely to be unemployed due to not being hired by (white) companies. IG is not the problem.

                                          Yea the lasers use colors to differentiate the hair from the skin so people with dark hair and skin the laser wouldnt see the hair and it would destroy the skin too. Best thing is to go to a doctor that has a laser with multiple wavelengths on their laser theres a company called laser away look for it in your area they do melanated skin.

                                          Bob Marley! A handful actually.
                                          Some may have less melanin putting them at greater risk.
                                          There’s a variation of melanoma that develops on unpigmented spots like palms, soles, i think in his case it was his toenail.
                                          Skin types 4-6 are unlikely to get screened + melanomas are the deadliest skin cancers = lower survival rate

                                              Btw this started due to the dimensional need for segregation. White people in America wanted to separate themselves from black people and other groups especially after slavery.

                                              This led to the divisions we still have today. Although many things in race relations are better than before.

                                              @Ole Dahl there are African American, Asian American, Latin American, Native American. For some reason white people don't say they're Europeans/white American.🤷🏾‍♀️

                                              Lindamorena in my opinion the scin color don’t have to be an issue. Americans with dark skin call themselves African American. Why not just Americans? We have people here in Norway with dark skin too but they are Norwegians just like the rest of us. We or they don't say African Norwegian. Why does dark skinned people in the us feel the need to call themselves something else than just Americans like everyone else. I haven't heard of Chinese Americans or Spanish Americans etc. Maybe that's just my lack of knowledge but the passport you have define what kind of citizen you are. It's like you in the us still want segregation to a certain extent? Is it really a need for that??

                                              @Ole Dahl Yes English. There isn't another comfortable way to call people from the UK , specifically England and Wales other than English. I'm not speaking of British people, although I'm sure there are black people in Scotland and Ireland as well.

                                            If your in the Washington DC area and seeking a black female dermatologist, please look up Dr. Sherry Maragh! I’ve been with her since she’s opened her first office and has changed my life!!!

                                              Joanna B. I guess that depends on what kind of insurance you have.
