Cow’s milk allergy and food intolerance

Cow’s milk allergy and other food intolerance are common in infants and young children.

Some of the symptoms to look out for if your child has milk allergy include:

  1. Rash
  2. Vomiting
  3. Diarrhoea
  4. Blood in the stools
  5. Eczema
  6. Irritability
  7. Wheeziness

Babies with cow’s milk allergy need to be fed on specialised formula for a period. If the baby is being breast fed, the mother will need to avoid certain foods such as dairy in her diet.

If you suspect your child has cow’s milk allergy, take him to see a specialist for further workup.
