Today, I discovered that I have developed an allergy to salt water on my face. Now, every time I sweat or cry, I come up in a bright red rash. I am allergic to my own bodily fluids. FML

hope you dont pee on yourself

...What? pee isnt salt water.... Anyway op that sucks big time, just try to stay happy and cool

Pee contains salt, so yes in a way he will get a rash if it somehow ends up on your face. I didn't think you could be alergic to salt water but hey, learn something new everyday

you probably developed that allergy from all the semen you get on your face you fucking whore, i hope you get AIDS too u dumbass,getting ur pussy fucked every night and getting semen on your face is bound to make your body sick you whore

you can. as simple as that. you can definitely be allergic to your own bodily fluids.

Hi #39 I am the STFU fairy. Guess why I am here?

to STFU yourself

you probably developed that allergy from all the semen you get on your face you fucking whore, i hope you get AIDS too u dumbass,getting ur pussy fucked every night and getting semen on your face is bound to make your body sick you whore

Really? Give me a single published example of someone allergic to salt, water or saltwater. Water is necessary for just about every reaction in your body. Sodium and Chloride ions are necessary for signal transduction in nerves, as well as a ton of transmembrane cotransporters. Do your own research. Might I suggest an intro bio class?

Most people don't pee on their own faces.... Just beware of R Kelly

Ahah, a blatant troll!

tarheel22893, i love your username(= OP, that really sucks. I didn't even know that was possible.

there was a news story about this, lol, she got it from some chemical thingy,...

then don't sweat or cry

doesnt everyones face get red when they sweat or cry?

yes but the OP gets a rash and a rash burns/hurts badly

this can't be real lol, maybe you have lupus

have you learned nothing from house? it's never lupus.

FAIL! There is salt, moron. Why do you think there is salt added to sports drinks? You lose salt when you sweat. Fucking tard. Look up things before spouting off your "genius" answers to the world. GTFO.

You're a fool. Take a basic biology class and you will learn that sweat has salt in it. Why do you think sports drinks have salt and electrolytes in them? Because you lose more than just pure water when you sweat. If you sweat a lot and only drink water and don't replenish the sodium, it can result in hyponatremia. Next time do some research before trying to sound smart.

Your tears have salt in them. That's why saline solution for your contacts is pretty much just salt water and if you try to wet your contact with fresh water it hurts like whoa.

absolutely fake mods, you fucked up

hahahaha i love that show :)

Back at you #43. Try reading the whole article, and not the title. Aquagenica Urticaria is an allergy to all water anywhere on your body. The article is about 3 sentences. L2use Google.

I did read the whole article. I wasn't saying the OP had it I was just saying that for people who do not believe that you can be allergic to sweat or tears that it is possible.

Haha this comment is epic.

I call bull, if this person developed an allergy it would be all over her body, not just her face, so when she sweats she'd have a rash under her arms, on her back, EVERYWHERE!

Agreed... skin allergies aren't specific to areas like the face or hand or a leg. More sensitive skin may be more subject to an allergy, but skin allergies affect all of the skin, not just one specific place. I did have a friend once that had an allergic reaction to the energy drink Vault... he could drink it, but if it got on his skin he got a really angry rash. That's about as abnormal a situation as I've seen, but skin allergies aren't area specific. OP probably just has dry skin.

not true. i have the same allergy, except it's all kinds of water, not just salty. i break out into a rash everytime i shower, sweat, cry.., and the rash is limited to my face and chest

No, I have an allergy to nail polish and it only affects a part of my face.

Maybe that's your NAIL polish saying you're not supposed to use it on your face???.............. Pure genius.

I know how you feel, my skin is sensitive on my face as well. If leave water on my face to dry on its own I get red blotches on my face for a little while. I'm not entirely sure why it does that either. My boyfriend thinks its funny to lick my face because it leaves red marks wherever he does it.

That's so adorable, even your body rejects itself.

This comment wins the world.

Yeah, you stole this from one of those medical shows. You can't only have an allergy on your face, it'd be on your whole body. I remember the show, and the girl couldn't cry, or she'd get a rash and her face would swell up. However, I'm not sure if I'm right or wrong, but I thought she was allergic to water of every kind.

I get a really bad stingy rash on my face whenever I sweat excessively like after a workout. So OP isn't lying. No one said anything about face swelling. Stop trying to look hard by calling out the OP with your bullshit.
