I think my daughter may be allergic to water

Patient

Q: Hi there my daughter is 14 years old and about 4 months or so ago she came out in hives on her legs stomach and arms. she had these for about 6 weeks so we went to the doctor and she got told she was allergic to dust. i did some research on the internet and found that with dust allergies you get itchy eyes sore eyes and coughing and wheezing and she has had none of that. we cleaned her room, vaccumed and her hives gradually went away. last week her hives came back but only on her legs this time, her room is clean so it cant be dust. a friend told us that dust cant cause hives because you have to consume something to have hives. we wrote down everything she has eaten this week, she got the hives on thursday so we wrotre down everything since last thursday, and the only trend is the amount of water she has been drinking. she usually would drink one or 2 glasses a day but recently she has been drinking more than 2 bottles of water each day and she said that when she last got hives she was drinking 2 or 3 bottles of water as well. i searched the internet for allergies to water and i only found that you can have an allergy to water when you shower swim etc so i was wondering if you can have an allergy to water from consuming it. any help would be very appreciated. thank you
