A Toddler Who Is Allergic To Water, Including Her Own Tears And Sweat, Has Only One Solution To Survive
July 10, 2018
Life for this family has been different since they found out what afflicted 18-month-old Ivy. The little girl from Minnesota suffers from a rare disease, aquagenic urticaria, which means she is allergic to water! The girl experiences torturous pain in the bath, so her parents try to wash her just once a week, and do anything to keep her clean.
Little Ivy is allergic to her own sweat and tears, too. When she cries, her face turns red and burns. Contact with water in any form and at any temperature causes painful blisters, rash, and blisters on her skin.
