Does Antibiotic Allergies Cause Milk Allergy

Less likely: Depending on how old someone is, a true milk allergy can cause eczema-like rash, bloody diarrhea, hives, vomiting, difficulty breathing, facial swelling, cough, wheeze, abdominal pain, lip swelling, etc. Acne in young infants is due to leftover maternal hormones, and acne in preteens, teen, and young adults is due to puberty related changes in hormone levels and skin. Your doctor can see what's needed. ...Read more
Unlikely: Milk allergy can lead to many skin symptoms including itching, hives, angioedema (swelling) and worsening eczema.

Not food allergy: Food allergies are typically an immediate reaction minutes to a half hour after ingestion of concerning food with symptoms ranging anywhere from hives, wheezing, itching, shortness of breath, wheezing, vomiting, or syncope (fainting). Worsening dermatitis would rarely be associated with food ingestion in adult. No such thing as slight food allergy, you might have milk intolerance. See Allergist. ...Read more
Allergic shiners: Any allergy that causes nasal stuffiness will lead to dark, swollen circles under your eyes. This is called allergic shiners. Blood leaving your nose passes through a network of small veins below your eyes. Since allergy increases nasal blood flow, the increased blood in the veins below your eyes give the skin a bluish color. Plasma may leak out of these veins resulting in edema (swelling). ...Read more

Avoid milk. Carry epinephrine. Call 911 if happens. ...Read more
Immune activation: The body recognizes foreign substances as invaders at time and will immunologically react against them. Antibiotics, especially in certain categories, will unite with bodily chemicals and become more likely to generate an immune response. When this happens, an allergy sets up.

When you reflux, it can get a little fluid past the flap & trigger cough, wheezing & occasionally a pneumonia. ...Read more

Sometimes: Sometimes milk allergy resolves on its own. There is no way to predict who will grow out of it and who will not. Milk allergy is most common in young children. You may want to consider if you are "allergic" (hives, itching, wheezing, swelling) or "intolerant" such as lactose intolerance which is typically related to the amount you have (diarrhea, bloating, gas). ...Read more
See an allergist: An allergist can monitor your child's milk allergy periodically. By following skin tests and/or blood tests to help determine the severity of your child's milk allergy, an allergist can help advise when it is safe to try to reintroduce milk again.

Good question: An allergy is when your immune system reacts to a substance, causing rashes, wheezing, etc. This can happen with milk and many other foods. Lactose intollerence is caused by a lack of an enzyme needed to digest milk. This typically causes bloating, gas and diarrhea with some cramping. Very different from an allergy. ...Read more
Immune mechanism: Reactions to foods can be from immune reactions, or from other mechanisms. Allergy is an immune reaction against the food. An intolerance might happen when you lack an enzyme to digest the food, such as with lactose (milk) intolerance. Generally speaking, intolerances are milder, not life-threatening, and cannot be diagnosed by typical allergy scratch or prick tests. ...Read more
