I agree with whizzer. Almost all allergies are to proteins, and water is not a protein.
If a person has a sensitivity reaction to water, there are a number of possibilities:
- The most likely one today is a reaction to chlorine. Skin reactions to pools or hot showers are likely to have this source.
- A person with a reaction to showering or jumping into a pool may be reacting to pressure or temperature.
- A person with skin reactions to water (or to their own sweat) probably has some imbalance in their skin, such as a pH imbalance. Or, reaction to sweat can be due to the fact that they are sweating out toxins that came in food or air at an earlier time. (I've had this problem and eliminated it by eating a healthier diet.)
- The flouride in drinking water where water is flouridated is actually dilute poison, and people have reactions to it.
- Some people may react to other impurities in water.
