Healing from skin allergy

Daniel is 11 years old. Since he was about 6 he has suffered with an allergy to chlorine. If we went swimming later that evening he would come out in hives on his arms thighs and stomach. This would cause him a lot of itching and his skin would become sore. When he was in year two we stopped his out of school swimming lessons as he was swimming in school and it didn’t give his skin enough time to heal up before his school swimming lesson.

This summer we went to California and we stayed in various places. Everywhere we stayed had a pool. The second night we were there Daniel was up in the night with his skin. I had taken special shower gel and antihistames with me to help but it didn’t really make any difference. I was able to get some stronger ones over in the states which helped him to sleep. During the first two weeks of out holiday Daniel swam every day we put loads of vaseline on him and dosed him up.

Whilst we were away we were able to visit The healing rooms at Bethel church. Daniel was prayed for by the lady there.

For the next two weeks we swam every day in various pools. One pool even turned all the childrens hair green due to the recently added chlorine and its reaction with the copper, and Daniel had no reaction what so ever. We even allowed him to go in the hot pools (which have a higher concentration of chemicals) and he has been completely fine.
We were starting to say to each other ‘ It looks like Daniels been healed!’ First two weeks of the holiday lots of sore skin, lots of tears and itching and second two weeks nothing. It really does speak for itself.

Since being home Daniel has been to Grange Paddocks three times. He always had terrible skin after grange paddocks and would often choose not to go to any parties or fun swims with friends due to this.

I have to conclude that God has healed Daniel. It amazes me that he has done this and utterly thrilled that Daniel has this testimony to tell.
