The Rare Norm a few months ago Share Tweet Pin Share I did a quick search and since no one has posted on this, here’s what I found after some quick research. The girl in this post is Rachel Falconer Bonus: Want to stay up to date on our latest Rare Norm news ? This BBC article seems to be one of the more well written articles about her. http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20160915-the-woman-who-is-allergic-to-water It seems to be that her skin reacts to all direct moisture, including fluids produced by her body. Anti-histamines help her cope, but she lives with what seems to be an undocumented auto-immune disease. There are people with similar auto-immune conditions. So yes, she is allergic to water, but not so directly as this post or the linked article in the post implies.
