No, it doesn't. If she hasn't she should try the cure. There is a treatment which has been tested and found to be potentially 100% effective. Just stop, you are embarrassing yourself.

Yes but here's how allergies work.

An allergen (a compound) binds to IgE receptors located on the surface of mast cells which have produced antibodies against a particular compound. This then results in degranulation and the release of histamine, along with other inflammation promoting chemicals.

The IgE receptor represents a ''lock and key'' configuration, so if a compound matches the shape of the receptor (the lock) it can bind to that receptor and trigger the mast cell release of histamine.

Someone on Quora (who said he had a PhD in biology and chemistry) said that the reason those people do not react/don't react as much when they drink milk, orange juice etc is because the additional compounds in orange juice/milk mess with the H2O molecule's interactivity with the mast cell receptors.

She still cannot drink water.

Oh Quora, must be true. Sorry, that's not how it works. In testing when the top layer of skin is removed, allowing MORE water to reach mast cells the reaction is less than when solvents are placed on the skin with the skin left there. The solvents mean more of the 'other chemicals' reach mast cells, and produces a bigger reaction than when more water reaches the mast cells.

You are seriously ignorant on the subject, I don't say that to be demeaning, I say that for you to learn how these things work so you can move past this.

Every single person throughout history that has consumed water has died. The mortality rate of this poison is 100 percent!
Screw gun control, banning abortions, water is the true killer!

Dihydrogen monoxide. Not even once.

Hey Jesus turned water into wine - must be something to it.

Now if I owned a soda or wine company I could see use for these fear tactics to drive business to me


have some non-H2O beer

How does this relate to those who have a reaction internally when they drink water? Eg. throat closing up, blisters, and wheezing? Even just a sip of water could cause all those symptoms for them. Rachel Warwick says if she drinks water it burns her throat and leaves blisters.

Anyone who said that is an idiot. Please don't explain to be how allergies work, you are ignorant on the subject, I am not.

That person should try omalizumab, it's been found to be effective for aquagenic urticaria.

They don't. Why do you keep talking about the throat being internal, it's not. Anatomically speaking it's external.

Again, how does this relate to those who cannot drink a sip of water without their throat closing up, blistering and burning?

So by your logic then saliva should always trigger it since saliva's supposedly 99.5% water and is always in the mouth and coating the throat.

Yeah, but beer is.. and beer is made with water,


What if I make that beer with scotch or vodka?

Actually that's your logic. If it is an allergy to water, and saliva is 99.5% water, saliva will trigger an allergic reaction, and she would die. Is she dead?

Then what is causing her reaction? And why is it called an allergy to water if it isn't?

Wikipedia lists ''water'' as an allergen under the ''environmental'' section -

Bottom line. If you stop drinking water, or consuming water based products, you will DIE.

Case closed.

The theory is now that the stuff in milk and orange juice may be preventing the H2O molecules from binding to the cellular receptors and triggering off an allergy. Apparently they STILL react to milk and orange juice but it isn't as bad.

I can't even read anymore of this thread, but this is Golden advice.

I was looking for a laugh but the cringe is too strong.

I stopped laughing after page one of this nonsense.
