Hi all ! This is going to sound completely crazy but over the past 2 years my 14 yr old daughter seems to have developed an allergic reaction to cold water..
At first we thought it was pool water ( chemicals etc) but now even going in the ocean or standing out in the rain causes her to have welts all over her body. Seriously it looks like she is getting whipped by something . They (welts) get raised , red and itchy . They last for a short while after she gets out of whatever she is in then they go away.
She does not have this problem with hot water or in hot tubs . It is truly bizarre!
She does have many allergies to all sorts of things but this is just weird . I thought I would ask around before calling dr. Also who to call allergist or dermatologist ...
