Eating your curds and whey

This was just linked from another forum that I was reading, and I found it to be very useful:

Milk Allergy & Intolerance: http://www.allergysa.org/milk.htm

It covers the question of why Andrew is allergic to milk, but has scratch and RAST tested negative to cheese — there are two different proteins in milk, and he's only allergic to one of them.

This is really interesting. Can your son have yogurt? Because mine can, and I actually thought that he had outgrown his milk allergy but maybe he was just never allergic to whatever is in yogurt.

He doesn't like cheese and I suspect that it may not "agree" with him. Maybe he is still allergic to dairy after all.
