Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Hard water contains excess of minerals.
It could be due to deficiency of vitamin and mineral.
I would suggest her multivitamins and zinc supplements.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
