No you cannot. Water is a very important substance that supports life. Without water you will dehydrate and eventually die.

You can be allergic to something like chemicals in the water. Iknow because my Daughter can't have the tap water here, but can have filtered and some bottled waters. She is chemical sensative.

no...Aquagenic Urticaria is not an allergy to H2O...its an allergy to ions that can be found in tap water due to its impure nature...someone with Aquagenic Urticaria with have no problem with distilled H2O

No, but if you drink too much, you can throw your body chemistry out of wack and get water intoxication and it can kill.


darthpandaofdoom
You could be allergic to something in the water, OR you could have Rabies!!!! HaHa.

Seriously, though there is a rare condition that gives people hives upon contact with water. It is similar to an allergy and is called Aquagenic Urticaria. Here is a link to some information:

No, your body is composed of more than 70 percent water.

No, you can how ever be allergic to contaminant's in the water. If this is a problem for you switch to distilled water. Problem solved.

Water allergy, or "Aquagenous urticaria", is such a rare condition that there are less than thirty patients in the whole world that have been diagnosed with it.

Fourteen year old Heidi Falconer is unique because she's the only person on record to have been born with this allergy. When water touches her skin or mucous membranes (like the inside of her mouth) she breaks out in a rash and often blisters, if she has a severe response it can lead to anaphylaxis β€” where her airways swell and close.

It's like any other allergy - an over-reaction of the immune system β€” where production of histamine causes the symptoms.

Doctors are still unsure as to why this happens with something as essential as water β€” one theory suggests that unusual proteins in Heidi's system react to the water. And because we're all made up of 80% water, Heidi is actually allergic to herself β€” her saliva, sweat blood and tears all blotch her skin.

There is no cure for aquagenous urticaria. The only relief for Heidi is a special barrier foam developed in Sweden that stops water from touching her skin. Heidi has applied it religiously every four hours for the past couple of years and it gives her the freedom to do basic things β€” like having a shower.

Being allergic to water is highly unlikely, but IS possible.
Water is in everything and even sweating would be painful...
