Nicholas Tse caused fans to worry recently when he shared a photo of his right arm and shoulder that was scarred with red marks.

As reported on Mingpao, the actor, who has been busy experimenting with his cooking, shared that the doctor has advised him not to stay in the kitchen for a long amount of time.

“But if you want to learn to cook anything good in a short time, maybe this is the price to pay?” he wrote.

He also added the hashtag ‘Gua Sha’, – the traditional treatment where the skin is scraped to produce light bruising, which explains the scars on his arms.

When asked about Nic’s condition recently, his manager Mani Fok shared that the actor had an inflammation on his tendon due to his constant cooking.

“He would practice handling the wok, and cutting ingredients that it put strains into his arms. He has been taking anti-inflammatory medicine and painkillers, but it had no effect, so he went for a Gua Sha treatment,” she explained.
