Allergic To My Tears

Meet Katie Dell who can’t watch a sad film – because she’s allergic to her own TEARS. Katie, 26, is one of only about 35 people who suffers from the rare condition called aquagenic urticaria, which means she is allergic to water. It means she can’t bathe, go swimming, or cry without triggering a painful, burning rash on her skin. Her condition often leaves her too scared to leave her home in case it rains.
