So I have noticed that when Nathan eats organic vanilla yogurt and organic milk he's not itchy but when he eats regular yogurt he is itchy. He ate a container of Trix yogurt the other day and his mouth got red all around it and he's been itching around his mouth. He eats the containers of Stonyfield Farms organic french vanilla yogurt and no problems at all. He also has no problems with cheese and organic milk (which I've switched to even though it's ridiculously priced). Has anyone else ever heard of this? I'm wondering if it's like the corn starch or dyes and additives that are causing the itching instead of the yogurt and milk themselves.....

It could be the additives. Also, pesticides and such are passed through regular milk but it is in quantities that are negligible for a person with a normal body system. Some people are super-sensitive to these though. However, if that were the problem I would guess the problem would spread to non-organic fruits and veggies as well and possibly meats. Does he have the same reaction with regular milk and regular cheese? If the reaction is different than I would like at things in the yogurt other than milk such as colors, flavors, and additives. If he reacts the same than I am completely stumped. I have heard of raw milk being tolerated (not pasturized and the enzymes are still there to break down the milk protein) but I have never heard of a difference between tolerating organic and inorganic milk... :/

I have found that lactose intolerant people can tolerate organic milk better, but that is it... :/ Maybe that is the problem? You can try buying the lactose free milk and see if he can tolerate that. If he can than you will know it is a lactose problem and not an allergy per se. It would still need to be avoided but that would explain why organic can be tolerated and the other cannot.

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my GREAT siggy.

People with lactose intolerance can often tolerate cheese with no problem as well.
