In brief: 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.
