The Vegas native was one of the millions living with the disease without realizing it. By that point, he was willing to try anything to alleviate the pain.
'Action should be taken and we should be a lot stricter': Lewis Hamilton insists racism is still prevalent in society and will not be wiped out for years
Speaking ahead of Sunday's Bahrain Grand Prix in the tiny Gulf state, he added: 'It is crazy to think that in these times racism is still so prominent.. It is there all around the world, which is sad to see.
'I don't think the situation is going to change for a long time. I don't fully know how it can be resolved.
'But everyone needs to stand up against it more. I remember being at school and you got a slap on the hand for it and it was just allowed to slide. That shouldn't happen anywhere. Action should be taken and we should be a lot stricter.
'It starts from parents passing it on to kids, and that then continues down..' Hamilton has previously highlighted the lack of diversity in Formula One.

Barack Obama Says People Confident in Their Sexuality 'Don’t Need 8 Women Around You Twerking'
On Tuesday, ex-president Barack Obama and Stephen Curry combined their powers for a town hall event that urged youngsters from minority backgrounds to develop confidence without feeling compelled to build self-worth based on chasing women and money.
The event unfolded in Oakland, and it also marked the fifth anniversary of Obama's My Brother’s Keeper Alliance. Both Curry and the former president talked about challenges they faced in their formative years, while also speaking about broader ranging topics, such as hip-hop, policing in minority communities, discipline in schools, male role models, and manhood.
Obama addressed societal pressures that young people face to act a certain way because of hip hop's frequent portrayal of what it means to be successful. The President's remarks on that subject were described as one of the event's "more humorous moments," as he blended making his point with some shade.
"We live in a culture where our worth is measured by how much money we have and how famous we are," Obama said to the capacity crowd made up of youth flown to the Bay from throughout the country. "I will tell you, at the end of the day, the thing that will give you confidence is not that. I know a lot of rich people that are all messed up."

‘I wish I had not taken that advice,’ he added.
