  • She might be sensitive to the content in her tears. If they are bad ask her doctor for a recommendation to an allergist.

  • Hives. It probably isn't an actual allery to tears especially if she gets them on places other than her face. People with sensitive skin, allergies, other issues can have problems when their body temp changes. When you cry you get warmer and that can trigger hives. It happens to me when I cry, go from AC to the hot, play sports in the hot, ect. Sometimes I feel like I have hives and you can't see them. It feels like hives under my skin.
