Sensitive to anythin: you can become sensitive to anything. Major cause of food sensitivity is frequent exposure to that good. See how many times people consume milk in one form or another in a day! If you are sensitive to one food you are sensitive to all other products derived from it. You may not be equally sensitive to all products today but on continued exposure you can sensitize to all products

Whey: is one of the 2 major milk proteins, the other is casein, the more abundant, many people become allergic to whey early in their lives but overcome this sensitivity later, whey is still present in dairy products, despite extensive processing, including heating, of cheese some people are still sensitive to the dairy products if originally sensitive to milk, better to avoid the dairy & c an allergist
