  • that would mean they were allergic to themselves considering the human body is mostly water

  • Maybe it is something in the water. A chemical in it. Try distilled.

  • Personally I'm not if it's water itself or the additives, minerals, and other things that are often found in water (or put there by purpose). Although I did read an article on MSN that it's possible to be allergic to water.

  • It's water itself. It causes hives/rashes, swelling int the throat, and other allergy symptoms.

  • Yes. My father is. He has to take meds for it everyday or he gets hives, itchy, just miserable.

  • Not to the water itself, but what is in the water. A lot of tap water is filtered and has addatives to make it safe for drinking. A person can be allergic to those addatives.

  • I am I can drink it, but when it touches my skin I break out in hives whether it be water, tears, sweat. It started when I was13. Some days are worse than others I live in AZ so it is awful in the summer time when I sweat...makes me itchy
