Cow's milk causes acne me (i stopped drink) but buttermilk not (from a milkman near to me). Can you explain why?? And can I take goat yogurt??

If sick after eating peach yogurt, do I have a peach allergy?

If sick after eating peach yogurt, do I have a peach allergy?

Not necessarily: Yogurt contains a variety of ingredients and is a milk product. If by sick you mean upset stomach, bloating, etc, you might be lactose intolerant. See if some lactaid helps with your symptoms. If you don't get these symptoms when eating a regular peach, I wouldn't suspect the peach in the yogurt. Might also check what kind of additives/preservatives are in the yogurt. ...Read more

16 mo. Old got rash around mouth from a yogurt parfait w/nuts in it. Any way to tell if her skin was irritated (from being a mess) or an allergy?

This should protect from irritation. Try the yogurt again. If it happens again, see our doctor. If you see lip swelling or problems breathing, call 911. ...Read more

Is probiotic powder effective? Is buttermilk or curd a probiotic? Any natural probiotics? Doc has asked me to take probiotics but need a reliable brand
