no. There are no chemicals for it.

No it is not possible.Your body is made up of water; if you were allergic to it, you'd be dead the day you were born.


Mark D
No. It wouldn't make sense because your body is made up of 75% water. If it were the case your would be allergic to yourself.

Not the water it's self since it is only made up of hydrogen and oxygen molecules but they could be allergic or sensitive to the additives that some waters have or chemicals in water such as fluoride, chloride and softeners.


i am who i am :)2notBu
no


Rena W
use dehydrated water, just add watter!

It is possible to have contact dermatitis from skin making contact with water - this is a topical allergic reaction. It is not possible to have a systemic allergic reaction - which would occur internally from drinking water. It is possible to have a systemic allergic reaction to something that is dissolved in your tap water.

I've never heard of anyone actually being allergic to water. But I myself, am allergic to mold. When I come out of the shower I get red spots all over my body. Same with pools. When it rains, I have the worst allergies.


Definitely Shaken
yeah but its extremely rare


Brandon Delrahim
Yes, there are rare instances of such an allergy.


Anonymous

Lauren R

Yes.

Yes and it's called Aquagenous urticaria.

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 — where her airways swell and close.

Yes you can be allergic to water, it is a very rare. I remember watching documentary about a young girl from Australia that as soon as soon as water touched her skin, she would come up in blisters.

Here is what I have found.

Allergic to Water

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 - where her airways swell and close.

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

Doctors are still unsure as to why this happens with something as essential as water - 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 - her saliva, sweat blood and tears all blotch her skin.
