    It may not be an allergy, but a reaction to something in the water. If you're having reactions to the well water, it would probably be a good idea to get it tested for minerals, toxins, and microorganism content.

    We have a well which tested fine for microorganisms, but has high concentrations of iron and manganese. This was only found out after one of our cats started having serious kidney problems. We're currently saving up for a new well and good filtration system, but until then, are only bathing and washing with the water. For drinking (us and the pets) and cooking, we buy triple-filtered water.
