The situation for the teenager is recent since until last year she enjoyed rowing and swimming on the beach, as well as other daily activities, however, at the end of last year she noticed that her body was burning.

To detect this pathology, it is necessary to apply a damp cloth with water on the skin for 20 minutes and thus check if hives develop. “I was pretty down for a few months because of it, and I get really upset when people ask me if I want to go to the beach,” she told the publication.

The family decided that Sadie should study at home and thus prevent her from sweating, the condition does not affect her internally, so she can drink water without any problem, although she must do so with a straw. (YO)
