Pop singer Andy Hui Chi-on is not just bundled up in long-sleeved clothes these days because of winter. The 37-year-old singer recently revealed on his record label's website that he has been suffering a skin rash. With only about a month to go before his concert, Hui said he developed the rash as a result of too much stress.

'This concert will have many different elements, including martial arts, gunfights and sexy dances,' he said. 'I had rehearsals every day because I want to give the best performance for my audience. As a result, these red spots started appearing.'

The rash is a problem not only for health reasons, but also because Hui had planned to appear shirtless for one segment of the show.

CitySeen consulted two dermatologists on Hui's behalf. Both concurred that while rashes may arise from stress, the description we had of Hui's condition was too vague for them to offer a diagnosis.

Looks like Hui will have to see a doctor himself.
