Hard to say: True cow milk allergy is rare compared to lactose intolerance, which can affect 1/4 of the population. If true, it can persist through life.There is IGE related allergy, or life threatening anaphylaxis or IGG related allergy which commonly produces hives. Specific allergy testing can give you more answers about the future.

Allergies: This probably represents allergies to dust mites, mold or pets. Google dust mite/mold elimination for a list of things to do to eliminate this exposure. Get all animals out of the house and if this fails to resolve the problem see your physician to find out why she is having the problem.

Not necessarily.: Being 15 years old puts your daughter right in the middle of her teen years. Remember that at this time, a lot of hormonal changes are occurring that can make your teen more moody, edgy, or act "weird". The key is communication with your teen- be sure to establish a trusting relationship with them and talk to them openly about alcohol, tobacco, drugs, and sex.

Good clean out: Every newborn will go thru some clean out & stooling transitions. The first stools will be black & sticky & if breast fed , baby may start to have a little smear of poo as often as every couple hours.After the first few days a little poo every feed or a cradle filler every ten days is possible. With formula it is often different, frequent stooling may indicate babies difficulty digesting a feed.

Some patients will have kidney involvement & blood or protein in the urine & pain or swelling can be worrisome. Most cases will self heal over a few weeks & require only observation & pain management. Followup aimed monitoring kidney status is routine.
