Aquagenic Pruritus is a reaction to water, showering that causes a severe and unbearable itching sensation that feels like fire ants.

Is anyone familiar with this ?

Thanks Rose

Also, still wondering if anyone has a low see rate with lupus.

I have been researching aquagenic pruritus and I am pretty sure I have it! I also have lupus! There isn't much information on the topic, nor do my doctors have a clue about it! I suffer everyday!
