What types of cheese can I feed a child who has a milk allergy?

What types of cheese can I feed a child who has a milk allergy?

Avoid bovine: With true bovine (cow ) milk allergy, which is rare, you want to avoid any cow milk related products.(cheese or otherwise) feta cheese, made from goat milk is a reasonable product that is readily available. If your child has simple milk intolerance due to its lactose content (1/4 americans) many bovine cheeses have minimal amounts. Verify the difference-allergy vs intolerance, life might be easier. ...Read more

My daughter cant have milk or cheese and her doctor says she MIGHT grow out of it... what are the chances that she will grow out of this allergy?

My daughter cant have milk or cheese and her doctor says she MIGHT grow out of it... what are the chances that she will grow out of this allergy?

Hard to comment: Food allergies can be scary bad, like the classical peanut/almost dies reaction.This is mediated by the IgE system and likely lifelong. Some food "intolerance" is not allergic and is more easily managed. Some who have IgG reactions to foods will become less bothered by them as they get older.Before you attempt a listed food, be clear with your doc when & if it is ever realistic to offer it. ...Read more

If a person has penicillin allergy, is it safe to eat roquefort, blue, or gorgonzola cheese? Does the mold in the cheese make penicillin?

If a person has penicillin allergy, is it safe to eat roquefort, blue, or gorgonzola cheese? Does the mold in the cheese make penicillin?

Great question: Reactions to penicillin in foods eaten by persons allergic to penicillin are rare - perhaps 10 cases in past 25 years worldwide. Cases involve eating meat from an animal given penicillin before slaughtering. I found no cases attributed to the cheeses listed. They use a different species of the genus penicillium to add flavor. Also many persons who think they are penicillin allergic are not. ...Read more

Why do I always get low grade fever after i eat sweet cheese? I get fever after like half a day.Food allergy?Leaky gut ?

Why do I always get low grade fever after i eat sweet cheese? I get fever after like half a day.Food allergy?Leaky gut ?

Fever: Although don't know what you mean by low grade, fever is commonly a response to an inflammatory process which causes release of cytokines like tnf or il-2, etc. These stimulate the hypothalamus to reset the body's thermostat. Allergy can do this, but many things are possible. Doubt you have a "leaky gut". Good luck. ...Read more

Ate spaghetti squash (w/olive oil, goat cheese, salt, pepper). Nose swollen inside, sinusdrainage, asthma. Allergic to squash?!? Other food allergies.

Food allergy: If you ate the squash and had an immediate reaction (minutes to 2hrs) that included hives, swelling, shortness of breath, wheeze, throat tightness, vomiting or passing out then I would be concerned for a food allergy reaction. Would make an appointment with an allergist to determine what could be the culprit foods. Bring list of ingredients eaten that meal to appointment. Avoid foods until seen. ...Read more
