A water allergy is not actually being allergic to water. The rest of your post is sheer nonsense, soda is mostly water. Urine is your body getting rid of the rest of the substances your body doesn't need. Take Anatomy and Physiology and learn a few things.

Their skin reacts horribly to water. Some things dilute it enough to be "tolerable" but they still need water. These people's lives are a living hell because they have to go to extreme lengths to get the WATER they need to survive while avoiding their skins violent reaction to being in contact with water. Veins and skin are not the same, thus why they can tolerate it in their blood streams, but suffer when as said in the article, the water in their body comes in contact with their skin. There is nothing about this condition that negates their need for water. All this condition does is making trying to get the water they need to survive #ing torture.

Understand now?

From this one, I'd say they are a lost cause.

They can't. It still bothers them, just less so. Your whole post is nonsense though because a water allergy is not actually an allergy because water is not an allergen. There are similar allergies which are the result of being touched. Pressure, which is not a compound of any type, is also not an allergen.

Explain these?
They also have an allergic reaction in their throat if they drink water.

If a person has allergic reaction to water, must be an alien.

If they're not allergic to water then why do they have allergic reactions internally if they drink water?

How do you know that H2O is not an allergen?
If it isn't H2O then why do they still have a reaction if they drink water?

You made a silly mistake.

Maybe just let this one go?

For the same reason people with a similar reaction to pressure do. It's possible water is dissolving the actual allergen and allowing it to get into mast cells. The water itself is not the allergen. Pressure is also not an allergen. Both lead to these reactions.

The fact water is not the allergen is proven by the fact internal water does not produce the reaction.

This incredibly ridiculous theory/thread.

This shows the risk of trying to understand something based on articles meant for filler or click-bait.

Some good information.


Aquagenic urticaria is a rare condition in which urticaria (hives) develop rapidly after the skin comes in contact with water, regardless of its temperature. It most commonly affects women and symptoms often start around the onset of puberty. Some patients report itching too. It is a form of physical urticaria. The exact underlying cause of aquagenic urticaria is currently unknown. Due to the rarity of the condition, there is very limited data regarding the effectiveness of individual treatments; however, various medications and therapies have been used with variable success.[1][2]

Symptoms
Aquagenic urticaria is a rare condition in which itchy urticaria (hives) develop rapidly after the skin comes in contact with water, regardless of its temperature. The hives associated with aquagenic urticaria are typically small (approximately 1-3 mm), red- or skin-colored welts (called wheals) with clearly defined edges. The rash most commonly develops on the neck, upper trunk and arms, although it can occur anywhere on the body. Some people have itching too. Once the water source is removed, the rash generally fades within 30 to 60 minutes.[1][2]

Do you have updated information on this disease? We want to hear from you.
Cause
The exact underlying cause of aquagenic urticaria is poorly understood. However, scientists have proposed the following theories:[1][2]
A substance dissolved in water enters the skin and triggers an immune response. In this theory, the hives are not caused by water, specifically, but rather an allergen in the water.
An interaction between water and a substance found in or on the skin generates a toxic material, which leads to the development of hives
.


So it's hives that develop when a person gets it on their skin and not caused by ingesting water, which is what I expected to find. Obviously, if you don't drink water you die within 3 to 5 days.

It's also obvious the main ingredient in soda is water. Water is water, is water.

Woman dies............
Parents killed girl by making her drink too much grape soda.

Obviously you're likely not saying you would drink that level of soda, but if you can drink soda, you can drink water. You need to talk to a doctor instead of taking it to the Internet.

Did you even read the articles I gave? Those people also react to ingesting water so clearly the condition you just mentioned and the condition in the cases I gave are separate.

Here they are again. Read them this time.

But wouldn't they be dead? Even a sip of water causes their throat to close up, it says so in those articles I gave.

You know, the water that is in your body, your blood, your cells. What do you think happens to water when you drink it, where do you think it goes?
