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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
That's so adorable, even your body rejects itself.
have you learned nothing from house? it's never lupus.
