What is milk allergy?

Milk allergy is a reaction to the milk, milk products, or the products containing milk by the body’s immune response. Milk allergy is one of the most common allergies seen in children. Mostly milk allergy is caused by cow’s milk, other than cow’s milk goats or sheep or buffalos or other mammal’s milk also may cause milk allergy. This reaction is experienced soon after the intake of the milk or milk products.

Milk allergy symptoms which appear immediately include wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath, itching or tingling sensation on the lips or mouth, swollen lips, tongue or throat, hives, or vomiting, runny nose, watery eyes, abdominal cramps, loose stools, blood in stools, or colic in infants, etc.
