Milk allergy/intoler: Gas is more likely due to milk or lactose intolerance. A large glass of milk, buttermilk or even yogurt can cause gas or bloating and gurgling in the abdomen. Cheese, except aged cheese, can also cause intolerance.
Allergic reactions can come faster and may include hives, nasal and chest symptoms soon after ingesting milk products. There is lot of confusion about this subject.

What are the initial signs of a milk allergy?

Skin and GI: Milk allergy usually begins in infancy. Most children have rashes (eczema or hives) and GI symptoms (pain and diarrhea). Less common are nasal and chest symptoms. Chronic constipation in infants and children is rarely due to true milk allergy. In young children the initial manifestation of milk allergy can be anaphylaxis, a severe systemic reaction.
