This Mum Is So Allergic To Water That Her Tears Could Kill Her

As health conditions go, this one really sucks.

Posted on

Barbara Ward, 43, from Hartlepool, County Durham, can't shower or even exercise because the sweat could send her into anaphylactic shock – a severe, potentially life-threatening allergic reaction.

It rules out ever doing simple things like laundry, cooking, or bathing children. Barbara can't even go out in the rain.

She can't use conventional cleaning products and has to use a special lard-like soap for washing. She also has to wear a mask on her face in public places as strong scents and products can set off her allergies.
