Teenage Girl that is Allergic to water.

Some of us are allergic to different things right, some are to Seafood, or maybe Nuts, Well im allergic to a form of medication called Erythromycin. No seriously, i am. I'll end up with like
a super bad tummyache. Anyways, count yourself lucky. Cause, this girl is Allergic to water!

Yes, it’s true, there is a girl who is allergic to water. I really feel sorry for her, seeing as the body is about 72% water(No it’s not 80%, 8% is a combination of chemical compounds). Even Sweating or doing anything active causes a rash on her skin.
She suffers from an extremely rare skin disorder called Aquagenic Urticaria - so unusual that only a handful of cases are documented worldwide. I’m glad I don’t have this disorder, and I really feel for her, I couldn’t stand going through life not being able to take a shower, bath, or swim in the ocean with pain and rashes as a result.

This is Ashleigh Morris. She can't go swimming, soak in a hot bath or enjoy a shower after a stressful day's work - she's allergic to water. Even sweating brings the 19-year-old out in a painful rash.Ashleigh, from Melbourne, Australia, is allergic to water of any temperature, a condition she's lived with since she was 14.

When Ashleigh gets wet her body explodes in sore, itchy red lumps that take about two hours to ease. She has to wash. But showering is a painful experience and she can only do it for a minute at a time.These brief showers are the only contact Ashleigh has with water. The one thing she doesn't miss is the washing up.

Baby : erm This is quoted from the Source '' Her family and boyfriend of three years, Adam, 23, are very supportive but her condition makes intimate moments with her Adam a little difficult.

"We have to sleep with a sheet between us at night, and I can't go near him if he's sweaty," said Ashleigh. ''
