You probably know that some people are allergic to certain foods, among the top ranked foods for allergy, milk is repeatedly counted. When those with milk intolerance consume milk, their immune system uses antibodies to fight the one or more of the proteins found in milk like it’s a harmful invader.
Commonly, Here are three types of symptoms someone might have due to an egg allergy:
Skin Reactions: Itchy red rash, hives, eczema, swelling of lips, mouth, tongue, face or throat, allergic “Shiners” (black eyes)
Stomach and Intestinal Reactions: abdominal pain and bloating, diarrhoea (usually very runny), vomiting, gas/wind, cramps
Nose, Throat and Lung Reactions: runny nose, sneezing, watery and/or Itchy eyes, coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath.

As for older children and adults, one should watch the recipes of dishes consumed in restaurants or at parties (see a list of hidden milk products). Proteins in milk and/or food may be the cause of the allergy, but this may be minimised if not eliminated by digestive enzymes. These digestive enzymes break down proteins in the intestines before reaching our blood supply and hence disallowing the protein to act as an allergen. Examples of products that do this are Spectrumzyme and Digestaid – found in the products section. Enzymes to the Rescue, is a medical report describing how digestive enzymes are helping people with food and milk allergy.
Antihistamine drugs are very effective in calming down the reactions caused by the allergy, such as itching. Antihistamine is a sedative drug therefore it sends the user in deep sleep. This is to the advantage of the sufferer as it stops the person from itching in cases of skin eczema. Other drugs, such as sodium cromoglycate and corticosteroid drugs can be take regularly to prevent symptoms from developing. Creams containing corticosteroids are useful for eczema but prolonged use of them may damage the skin.
However, the surely safe and simple cure should be total avoidance of milk proteins. Need some alternatives of milk include soy milk, rice milk, and hypoallergenic formulas based on hydrolysed protein or free amino acids. Use substitute for cow’s milk in baking or cooking. Instead of a cup of cow’s milk, complete your breakfast with a glass of rice milk putting on cereal.
