Milk allergy occurs when the proteins present in the cow's milk reacts with the immune system of our body. This type of allergy is generally seen in infants as their digestive system are not often strong for digesting milk and milk based products properly. Even adults are also susceptible to milk allergies (Lactose Intolerance). The consumption of milk can result into different types of ailments such as wheezing, vomiting, hives, loose stools, diarrhea, abdominal cramps, running nose, and skin rashes. In some critical conditions, it may lead to asthma, eczema and gastro intestinal problems. If you are suffering from milk allergy, then the first precautionary step that you are needed to avoid milk and resort to other alternatives such as soymilk, soy butter, fruit juice, puddings, soy and rice-based deserts ice pops and other non dairy products. Apart from this, anti allergy drugs like oral sodium cromoglycate can also taken to prevent adverse reactions. But you need to consult the doctor before you take this medication.
