Water Allergy’s Surprise Symptoms

Are you allergic?

People with water allergies do not accept water.

It is said that there are about 30 people with water allergies in the world.

For example, there is the following woman.

When she was 12 years old, she felt something wrong with her body when she took a bath.

When she was soaked in hot water, she suddenly developed urticaria all over her body, and also felt internal bleeding of the skin and pain in her joints.

Since then, the same rejection has occurred just by touching the body with water.

It has sometimes been difficult to breathe.

The lives of people with water allergies are very harsh.

They are subject to strict restrictions such as:

  • You cannot take a bath or swim
  • You cannot sweat
  • You cannot drink water (drink milk, tea, etc. little by little)

Since there are individual differences in the symptoms and degree of allergies, specific measures differ from person to person.

Currently, no cure is known.
