Protein found in milk includes casein and whey and can cause an autoimmune response for those who are allergic. This is most common in young children and may become less severe over time. Cow’s milk is most likely to cause a reaction; however, some get symptoms from sheep or goats’ products as well. Symptoms range from a mild rash or digestive discomfort, to wheezing or full anaphylaxis.
If you think your child may be experiencing an allergy to milk proteins, it is important to consult with your Midland Health GP. Managing an allergy may include using certain replacement products such as hypoallergenic formulas or soy milk, as well as supplements to replace calcium in your child’s diet. We’re here to help advise and offer guidance in what can seem like difficult time with your child.
