Patient discussion about milking

Q. Can I be allergic only to milk? I don't get anything from eating dairy- only from drinking milk I get itchy and sneezy. is that possible?

A. dairy milk is devoid of any enzymes because it's pasturized
your body needs enzymes to break milk proteins down
if your allergic it means you don't have enough enzymes to break them down
and your body is trying to signal you to stop what you are doing

try getting an enzyme before taking milk if you don't want milk to take out from your diet

a substitute would be rice milk or almond milk

Q. Is this because of the milk change or anything else. After the change of formula milk to cow milk one and half year old daughter seems to be constipated most days. It’s really upsetting her. Is this because of the milk change or anything else?

A. Check if your baby is not consuming the milk more than required and recommended. Large volume of milk, both formula or cows can lead to constipation in children. Reduce her intake of milk see if the constipation resolves, but ensure of her fluid intake like plain water to help her digestive system. It’s always good to keep up a good intake of plain water. Fruit, vegetables and wholegrain cereals are the best sources of fibre and must be introduced and these stimulate the digestive system. Try these as it may of your help, but if trouble persists do visit a doctor or dietician.

Q. Does cow's milk cause acne? I'm 16 years old guy, and I have acne for several years now. Lately, although I treat it as my dermatologist instructs me, it seems I have more zits, particularly on my face. My friend told it can be because for the last few months ago I've been drinking a cup of milk for breakfast (I almost didn't drink milk at all before that). Is it true? The acne really makes me miserable, and the last thing I want to do is to make it worse. Thanks!!!

A. Regardless of what milk does to your acne, emotional stress can also make it worse, so first of all, try to relax- it'll make feel better and can also make your acne better, so it'll make you feel even better. Try to avoid milk for some time and see what helps you most. No one really proved milk has any influence on acne, so you shouldn't feel like you you're responsible for your acne.
