Allergy to milk and other dairy products is one of the significant ailments of our time. Out of the different Types of Allergies, the life-threatening 'Milk Allergy' is affecting the adults as well as young ones, and especially the infants. Almost 3 % of the infants are observed to be suffering from Milk Allergy.

The abnormal allergic reaction due to the milk protein affects the growth and development of the child. Also, for adults, the exaggerated over-reactions from the immune system can be really fatal. Within a few minutes or an hour or so, the symptoms can be clearly noticed. The following are some of the most commonly noticeable symptoms of Milk Allergy:

  • Vomiting and trouble in digestion
  • Irritation or itching in throat, eyes or ear
  • Loose motions or constipation and abdominal pain or cramps
  • Wheezing and difficulty in breathing
  • Rashes on the skin, eczema or hives
  • Swelling of face or lips
  • Sneezing
  • Infection in the ear
  • Red and watery eyes
  • An infant may refuse the food
  • Infant colic
  • Changes in the behavior
  • Frequent attacks of asthma
  • Coughing and running nose
  • Diarrhea can also be one of the Food Allergy symptoms, as some of them can be noticed after 24 hours of the consumption.
These symptoms may further lead to Anaphylactic shock; however, the chances of getting anaphylaxis are not as grave when compared to other types of Allergies. But it doesn’t imply that you should not take it seriously.

Milk allergy can cause different problems like respiratory problems, Dermatological, gastrointestinal or behavioral. As an adult, one can check out any of these signs of Milk Allergy in oneself or can consult any physician, but on the other hand, an infant can’t even express what exactly the feelings are. So, they need that extra special care.

Do consult a doctor immediately after seeing any of the symptoms in your child.
