Cows’ milk allergy (CMA) is a common childhood food allergy that affects about 7% of infants under one. Most children grow out of food allergy by the age of 5. Cows’ milk allergy usually develops when cows’ milk has been introduced into a baby’s diet.
There are two main forms of Cows’ milk allergies:
Immediate CMA – The symptoms usually start within minutes of consuming cows’ milk.
Delayed CMA – The symptoms usually begin a few hours, or days, after consuming cows’ milk.
Cows’ milk allergy can lead to a range of severe symptoms, including:
- Eczema that doesn’t improve when treated.
- Digestive problems such as vomiting, stomach ache, diarrhea, colic, or constipation.
- Hay fever symptoms such as a blocked or runny nose.
Occasionally cows’ milk allergies can lead to severe allergic symptoms such as wheezing, swelling in the mouth or throat, shortness of breath, cough, and noisy, difficult breathing. Severe allergic reactions can lead to life-threatening anaphylaxis.
