|See the link to Allergy or Intolerance. Any unpleasant reaction to a food or substance is often described as an allergy. This is not always the case. Adverse reactions are often caused by an intolerance or sensitivity that has nothing to do with allergy. An allergy always involves the body’s immune system and can be quite serious.Milk allergy can be manifested as asthma, eczema (an itchy rash), rhinitis (inflamed nose), and gastrointestinal distress, as well as bleeding, pneumonia, and even anaphylaxis (shock). Every parent should be alert for signs of milk allergy.
A lack or deficiency in digestive enzymes can cause some types of food intolerances. Lactose intolerance is a result of the body not producing enough lactase used to break down lactose, the predominant sugar in milk.
