When Ashleigh gets wet her body explodes in sore, itchy red lumps that take about two hours to ease.
She has to wash. But showering is a painful experience and she can only do it for a minute at a time.
I remember a while back there was a fuss with the movie "Signs" in which it was revealed that the aliens were weak to water. The outrage came from the fact that the atmosphere consists mainly of water. Well, the aliens didn't melt in the atmosphere. This girl isn't breaking out into a husk of a human. I think that movie should be revisited.
Did I just connect a skin condition to a billion year old movie?
