Water urticaria, or aquagenic urticaria, is a rare condition in which hives develop within 1 to 15 minutes after contact with water. The hives last for 10 to 120 minutes and do not seem to be caused by histamine release like the other physical hives. Most investigators believe that this condition is actually exquisite skin sensitivity to additives in the water such as chlorine.
actually she might get better . i was reading the comments and 1 of the guys there posted saying he too had the disease for several years and it was tought for him but now the sideffects have reduced..so there might be a chance hopefully for her to get better
I don't think she's allergic to water, I once thought that but I soon realized that it was the soap and my rag. So I have to use a special soap. But this is kinda different, cause my only symtoms were excessive itiching.
