My husband has very sensitive skin and he always gets skin rashes from dyes or clothes rubbing. You might also be sensitive to dyes or have very sensitive skin. Recently I found some socks online that have been great. They are called Therasock double sock system. They are quite clever. It is made of 2 socks, the inside is white and dye free while the outside is colored. SO the dye doesn't bother him! He can finally wear black socks with dress shoes and not complain! It's great. If anyone else has this problem, the website is http://www.therawear.com/therasock_double_sock_system_crew_socks.html. Give them a try!
Water urticaria, or aquagenic urticaria, is a rare condition in which hives develop within 1 to 15 minutes after contact with water. The hives last for 10 to 120 minutes and do not seem to be caused by histamine release like the other physical hives. Most investigators believe that this condition is actually exquisite skin sensitivity to additives in the water such as chlorine but distilled water can also cause this reaction.
Water urticaria is diagnosed by applying tap water and distilled water to the skin and observing the reaction. Contact dermatitis can be diagnosed from your symptoms and physical examination. Blood tests and x-rays are not helpful.
Treatment of water urticaria includes epinephrine, antihistamines, or cortisone-like drugs. Itching can be controlled with cold packs or commercial topical agents that contain menthol, camphor, eucalyptus oil, aloe, antihistamines, or cortisone preparations.
Pls get yourself examined by an allergy specialist and then start with a treatment.

My daughter had this very similar situation. She would break out in a rash called eczema, which doctors then put her on a cortisone cream. The cortisone cream helped, however after it would wear off the rash came back. She was so itchy and seemed like she was in pain. I took her to an allergist specialist who said it could be her detergent or even soap. He recommended an all natural/ hypoallergenic detergent and soap and wait and see if the rash goes away. After a ton of research, I started using what he recommended and within about 2 weeks, my baby girl is RASH FREE!
I saw that these soaps and detergents that are allergy free tend to be expensive.. if anyone is interested in this stuff, I found the cheapest yet best quality soap and detergent at
www. alleproproducts.com -if you are having skin allergies I deff recommend them.
Hope this helps everyone.
