You have increased Fire and Cold Resistances

50% increased Fire and Cold Resistances

At first glance the mod Nearby Enemies have 50% increased Fire and Cold Resistances may sound unhelpful, however it also multiplies negative resistances.[1]

For example:

A monster such as the Shaper has a base of 50% elemental resistance. We lower the monster's cold resistance via Elemental Equilibrium (from previous non-cold hit), a level 20 FrostbiteFrostbiteSpell, AoE, Duration, Cold, Curse, Hex
Level: (1-20)
Cost: (24-50) Mana
Cast Time: 0.50 sec
Radius: 22

(Note that in this example it does not take into account boss' curse effectiveness) and cold exposure from Eye of Malice's mod, which applies -10% Cold resistance for 4 seconds.[2] The monster now has -54% cold resistance which then gets multiplied by 1.5 (50% increased), resulting in a total of -81% cold resistance. The negative then translated into the damage calculation as more damage taken by the monster.
