You thought sneezing and itchy eyes were bad? yeah, try having your skin feel like its on fire every time you take a shower. Hey everyone, Laci Green here for DNews. I have terrible allergies, so about this time of year I kind of start feeling sorry for myself. But you know what? That ends today my friends. I have seen allergy hell, and it ain’t pretty. Here are 5 real allergies people actually have to put up with:.
Number 1? water. i mean, you’d think that since our bodies are mostly water that might be a little problem. But, as it turns out, people with a water allergy are alive and functioning it’s estimated that 1 in every 23 MILLION people has it. The allergy is called Aquagenic Urticaria, and it causes itchy hives when the person comes into contact with water. The hives can last for hours. A woman from Britain has to drink diet coke to survive and another from Australia can hardly stand to shower for 1 minute before it starts burning!.
Poor thing! i’ll never take a shower for granted again. well, i probably will like a week from now. Number 2: EXERCISE. It’s the allergy we’ve all been hoping for. Nah, I’m just kidding. It actually sounds awful. Exercise Induced Anaphylaxis can be lethal. It starts with hives and skin irritation, then trouble breathing. If it is severe enough, anaphylaxis will cause your blood pressure to drop and your lungs tighten until you can’t breathe. Scientists.
Think that this rare condition may be brought on by eating something they’re allergic to and then working out right after. Number 3: THE COLD! I mean, I think I’m psychologically allergic to the cold but there are some people who form rashes and have trouble breathing when they step out into the cold, find themselves in cold water, or even drinking cold beverages. Cold Urticaria is an inflammatory disorder that can cause a flood of histamine to be released in the body, leading to a drop in.
Blood pressure, fainting, and even death. so much death. i guess i’ll stop complaining about the cold now. Number 4 is SEMEN. Semen allergies are definitely a thing, it’s thought to affect anywhere between 2040,000 Americans. People with this allergy can experience vaginal burning, swelling, itching, hives, and shortness of breath after coming into contact with their partner’s semen. Strangely, there have also been a few cases of men being allergic to THEIR OWN semen!.
s say the best way to treat this allergy is to avoid contact all together but i dunno, that seems like it would be kind of hard if it’s coming out of your own body. Last up is the sun! This is the most depressing thing I’ve heard all day. It’s apparently not even that uncommon for someone to develop a rash, bumps, crusting, or blisters when they’re exposed to sunlight. It takes the idea of a sunburn to a whole new terrifying level.
