It is probably not the water as such that is causing this problem but the temperature of the water.Children can be allergic to water, but more commonly to cold water or hot water.You do not say how old your little girl is but you can try giving her Zyrtec Syrup 2.5ml about half an hour before she has a bath. If she is over 3 years of age then give her 5ml of the Zyrtec syrup and see if this stops her water allergy.Please let me know if she gets better otherwise I need to advise you further.
