In the middle of the last century, physicians described a rare and unpleasant disease, dubbed "akvagennaya hives." In our time, this disease is better known as an allergy to water, and the opinions of doctors about the disease differ, and effective treatment can only dream of allergies.

Some experts believe that allergy to water as such does not exist, since the allergic reaction is not the water itself, as it contains impurities. For example, arms may appear rashes from contact with tap water, and in this case the reaction is dissolved in water chloro.

There are also allergic to seawater, and in this case, the body reacts to the mineral and organic matter, which is saturated with sea water and not to the actual compound of hydrogen and oxygen. And what is popularly known as an allergy to the cold water, is a reaction to the cold, but not on the water itself.

Usually, if a child or adult are allergic to water, chlorinated tap or sea, the survey reveals high levels in the blood not only of histamine, and immunoglobulin E, which indicates a malfunction in the immune system.

Treatment and prevention of urticaria akvagennoy

The first and necessary means, without which treatment is almost impossible - the cessation of contact with the allergen. Often the symptoms go away within an hour and a half after the child's skin or adult is wiped and dried. Stains gradually fade away, hives, itching stops, even if you do not take any drugs. But in more severe cases, without antihistamines can not do.

In order for treatment to be successful, it is necessary to conduct a full examination of the body, as any allergic reaction - is only a symptom of other disorders. As a rule, a history of a child suffering from an allergy, there is evidence of kidney or liver disease, disorders of the adrenal glands. Often allergic to water appears after taking certain medications. The child became ill with angina or acute respiratory disease, he was given antibiotics, the disease has passed, and after a while it turns out that cold or sea water causes rashes and itching.

It is known, for example, the case where a severe allergic reaction to the water, there was a child, Australian Ashley Morris, after the treatment of acute tonsillitis girl was assigned a large dose of penicillin. Tonsillitis treatment was successful, but a large dose of the antibiotic was responsible for the adverse reaction - hives akvagennoy. Common shower caused the appearance of a child severely itchy red spots all over his body. Allergic symptoms disappear after a couple of hours, but during this time the girl could comb the skin to the blood.

Such reactions are caused by contact with any water: the water and the sea, and cold and hot. Currently, she has grown up, but to cope with the disease is not possible. Each day, Ashley can hold no more than one minute in the shower, and even after brief contact with water symptoms such as rash and itch, not allowed to rest for a few hours. Not to wash their hands or wash, or even afford to be without an umbrella in the rain girl can not. Doctors hope that over time the body itself to cope with the disease, but it is an effective therapy can not offer.

Allergy to the water can also be caused by the presence of helminthic invasion, so you need to regularly screened for infection with worms and, if necessary, to treat with deworming drugs. The big risk to get any kind of allergy exists in the child, which parents treat their own, without consulting a doctor giving him certain medications.   Treatment of any disease should be treated by a doctor, and after a detailed examination.
