EXPOSED: Remember the girl who is allergic to water - read these facts

Allergies are your body's reaction to a normally harmless substance such as pollen, molds, animal dander, latex, certain foods and insect stings.

It is not rare to have allergies but who would have thought that some people could be allergic to water. Something that we out to use everyday and that our bodies need to survive.

Cherelle Farrugia, a 25-year-old mum from Cardiff, breaks out in a painful rash every time she comes into contact with water. She is allergic to water.

She was diagnosed with a rare condition called aquagenic urticaria after giving birth to her daughter.

When you are allergic to water, you can drink the water, but don't let it get on your skin. For people with aquagenic urticaria, a rainy day or summer pool party can turn into life-disrupting allergy triggers.

I have to admit that this is one of the strangest allergies I have ever heard of. My question is how does this person bath?? Do they both?? Please leave a comment.
