Aquagenic Urticaria: Aquagenic urticaria is an unusual dermatological condition that is characterized by the appearance of a rash after exposure to water. The rash can break out within minutes of water exposure, and may last for up to two hours. It is common for the rash to be itchy, which can cause extreme discomfort for the patient. There is no cure for aquagenic urticaria, although sometimes medications help.
