Question Allergic To Water !

My wife is allergic to water; whether she takes a bath or shower, the result is the same - she comes out with red blotches all over. Are their any natural remedies which any member knows of ?

Thanking you in advance.

Lenny

It sounds like water uriticaria.

It would be a good idea to contact your water provider. They may be able to recommend procedures that have helped others in a similar position.

That was interesting information. I had never hear of it before. Always time to learn something new.
Thanks

Yes, we like to think our water is 'pure'. It probably is when it starts its journey from the moors, dales and uplands, and natural springs. But on the way ...

The water here originates from natural springs in woodland. In terms of purity, the water is probably as good as it gets.

The water company adds chlorine though, to 'prevent bacterial build-up'. They all do.

Many times here the amount of chlorine in the water ... You could smell it from three feet away. And it would give you heartburn if you drank it.

You can filter tap water, easy enough - though should you have to?

I see from the article it is possible to get a shower filter, though not sure if you can get this in England.

Yes.

Not the water, but what's IN the water.

Yes! That is what she discovered when researching this condition, and the other side effects such as a sore throat and blisters on the gums when brushing teeth.

What could the water provider do ?

Thanks.

Specifically, I couldn't tell you because I've not been in that situation.

They could provide information on filter systems for drinking water and probably for bathing water too I would have thought.

What, if any, responsibility there is if their product is causing a severe allergic reaction I couldn't tell you.

The wisest counsel would be to get a medical diagnosis, then you have at least some legal basis for assistance from the water company.
One would think you would at least qualify for a discount in the bill.

There is a group on Facebook called Aquagenic Uriticaria Awareness. They might be worth contacting for advice and information.

I had similar reaction and I found something that works great! It is provides great soothing and relieve. It is organic oatmeal. You boiled in purified water a lot longer than you do when you prepare it for breakfast. You should put a lot of water since it goes down as it boils. It becomes very mushy and the water gets thick. You drain the water and rub it on the effected areas. it is kind of slimy but it provides great relief. You can feel it once you start rubbing. I used it lukewarm. It cleared the redness and itch and heal it after applying it several times.
