My baby's body rash is getting worse. Concerned it might be an allergic reaction to almond milk. What should I do?

Don't worry: First don't stress out. Babies get rashes all the time for various very common reasons. Second, why are you giving almond milk? You can stop it if you'd like. This may provide data as to whether or not it is involved. Third, take photos of the rash progression and see the pediatrician because only eyes-on can really determine the type of rash. Could be allergy; I'd sooner blame a virus or eczema.

Mild blisters on the back and neck, allergic reaction to almond milk?

Mild blisters on the back and neck, allergic reaction to almond milk?

Unlikely: This localized issue as you describe is unlike to be related to a food allergy. You can always stop the almond milk for a couple of weeks and see if it disappears but I doubt any relationship.

I have recently started drinking almond milk and been developing blister like marks on my back and neck... Is this an allergic reaction?

Any reports of food allergies to almond milk?

Scarce: I was able to find a pediatric study from france published in 2002 that showed 2 children out of 163 had allergy to almond milk that triggered their asthma. I really expected to find more....The one concern when using almond milk is lack of vitamin and calcium supplementation in some products.

Why does regular milk cause my extremities to tingle? I am fine with almond and soy milk. No allergies.

Why does regular milk cause my extremities to tingle? I am fine with almond and soy milk. No allergies.

Two considerations: Milk Alkali Syndrome (hypercalcemia) and milk allergy. Parasthesias are uncommon but alkalosis from hyperventilation does cause parasthesias. Usually we think of milk Alkali syndrome as causing constipation, bone pain, psychiatric symptoms and kidney stones.

Can my 2 year old be allergic to almond milk but not to almonds? He eats them daily no reaction, tried almond milk and vomited 3 times right after,

Can my 2 year old be allergic to almond milk but not to almonds? He eats them daily no reaction, tried almond milk and vomited 3 times right after,

Unlikely: If your 2 year old had a true IgE-mediated allergic reactions to almond this allergy would manifest with both almonds and with almond milk. Given your concern and consistency of reaction I would have your child avoid almonds until seen by an Allergist for skin or blood testing to confirm/deny allergy. An Allergist will be able to get to the bottom of this.

What happens if my boyfriend (allergic to peanuts) drank almond milk without having a reaction, can he eat powdered almond?

What happens if my boyfriend (allergic to peanuts) drank almond milk without having a reaction, can he eat powdered almond?

Probably: Peanut and almond are not cross reactive. If there is no history of almond allergy in the first place, then drinking almond milk confirms no allergy. That said you have to make sure that the almond powder is not processed in a factory which also makes peanut products.

Can you tell me if my boyfriend (allergic to peanuts) drank almond milk without having a reaction, can he eat powdered almond?

Almond is different: It's a tree nut, different from peanuts, no cross reactivity, but he can be allergic to both, if he drank almond milk and was exposed to almond before with no reaction, then he would have no problem eating powdered almond, just be cautious, try a small amount first, you can try it in a doctor's office/waiting room, if any problem, so you are in the very place you want to be in, take care

How come my son can eat yogurt and cheese with no problem but has allergic reaction to a full glass of milk?

How come my son can eat yogurt and cheese with no problem but has allergic reaction to a full glass of milk?

Allergy to milk: Are you sure it is a allergic reation? If the symptoms are intestinal pain and diarrhea then he may have lactose intolerance due to milk sugar lactose not being digested. Yogurt has less lactose than milk and that is why it may be eaten with problem. If it is allergy, then a whole glass of milk carries a lot more allergic portortion compared to yogurt.

I was 17 thought I was having a heartattack come to find out my lungs swelled up n pushed on my heart it was an allergic reaction to milk what do I do?

Makes no sense: This is not a logical explanation from a milk allergy. Consult an allergist. In the meanwhile avoid all dairy products. It is also possible that you have an anaphylactic reaction to milk causing coronary spasm but this is not a question to be solved in this forum.

My 4 month old baby has an allergic reaction to milk formula and has switched to soy without problems. When should he have an allergy test?

My 4 month old baby has an allergic reaction to milk formula and has switched to soy without problems. When should he have an allergy test?

No rush if soy OK: Was the reaction skin, respiratory or gastrointestinal (gi)? Was there blood in the feces? If symptoms were completely GI & associated with pallor or floppiness think enterocolitis. This non-ige mediated milk allergy reaction may persist for several years. Only valid test is oral challenge carefully performed by an experienced allergist. For skin & respiratory symptoms skin or blood test at 1 year.

A girl 13 years old had fish milk allergic reaction got leukoderma on face what you suggest these are whites spots will it spread on all body remedy?

Unrelated: Leukoderma is loss of pigment from the skin. It can be caused by overuse of potent topical corticosteroids or it may be an autoimmune disease. Food allergy is a different kind of abnormal immune reaction. Non-western hcps may see them as related. If autoimmune it may spread. In india fruit of bael tree is used as remedy. If steroid-induced avoidance will lead to gradual resolution.

If you are not allergic to almonds or any other nuts, can you still be allergic to almond milk??

Doubt it: There are sometimes additives like stabilizers and preservatives in any product that you buy. People can have reaction to these additives. Almond milk is generally free of most problem additives, so it is usually well tolerated by anyone not allergic to almonds.

Can you have an allergy to almond milk and if so, what are the symptoms?

Can you have an allergy to almond milk and if so, what are the symptoms?

Yes: It is usually due to a tree nut allergy (almonds). The symptoms of food allergy can range from strictly skin symptoms to GI to respiratory, etc. If GI upset is the sole symptoms, then it might not be a true food allergy but more of a food intolerance. Seeing an allergist for testing could help to confirm or refute the diagnosis.

Which one is healthier, soy milk or almond milk? I am not allergic to either.

Which one is healthier, soy milk or almond milk? I am not allergic to either.

Depends: Manufacturers generally fortify soy milk and almond milk to make it nutritionally equivalent in terms of calcium and vitamin d to cow's milk. Since there is a large variation, it is best to read the nutrition facts to make sure you are receiving the recommended intake for your age and gender (can google a calculator online to estimate your needs).
