It appears my 13 month old son is allergic to cow milk, but only the shelf-stabilized kind - he gets hives from head to toe. He drinks refrigerated milk without any problems. I can't find anything about why this would happen. Has anyone heard of this before? TIA!
I had typed a really long reply to this and then my computer messed up and I was too ticked to retype... Here is a summary of what I know. Many people with lactose intolerance can tolerate raw cow's milk but not pasteurized cows milk. I have heard a few people say that organic is the same way but not many. If you are talking about the kind in the box I would say it is something in the milk...is it like parmalat? The kind that doesn't have to be refridgerated? That stuff is hard on systems in general...I would expect it to be something in the non-refrigerated milk rather than the milk part of it... If I misunderstood PLEASE correct my interpretation and I will try to answer better.
This was Hershey's "shelf-stabilized milk". It has to be refrigerated once opened, but is good for months until then. He continues to do fine with regular refrigerated cow milk as well as other dairy items. There's nothing extra listed on the ingredients of the box, so that's why I'm not sure if this was the culprit. Thanks!
Did you add anything to it or had he had anything else for the first or second time that day? Even something in the morning could have triggered a reaction in the evening or something from the evening before trigger a reaction the next morning...
