My DS has always suffered with eczema. It's been relatively under control with lots of moisturiser and a little steroid cream.
He's had allergy testing, all ok. I have not been able to identify any triggers.
He has had lots of yoghurt and cheese, and I haven't ever noticed flare ups. He is one in a couple of weeks and I've started giving him cow's milk on cereal. I think his eczema is worse...
Can babies be ok eating some dairy foods and still be intolerant to cow's milk?

Possible to be cow's milk intolerant but ok with yoghurt & cheese?

Cows milk has more protein in it than yogurt and cheese, which is one of the reasons it is not recommended under 1 ( and most naturopaths don't recommend it at all!) why not try goats milk ( you can get goats cheese and yogurt too!)

My son is the same. Strong allergy to cows milk unless it's cooked (in a cake) and is fine with yoghurt and cheese as pp mentioned its to do with the protein

Not the same thing but DS, 13 months is fine with yoghurt but was crying with tummy pains after drinking some cow's milk at my mum's house. I switched to A2 and he's much better.

I was the same from the time I started on dairy until I tried raw cows milk, now I can have all kinds of dairy with no issues something about secondary lactose intolerance..it's caused by a tummy bug?

As pp said cows milk had more protein than cheese and yogurt.
I think from memory DD2's Dr said it goes things cooked in milk like biscuits etc (being the least amount of protein), cooked cheese like a bit of cheese on toast, fresh cheese, yogurt, then milk.
It is possible to be CMPI and be able to tolerate cheese and yogurt but its usually about how much as well. DD2 is able to tolerate a small amount of cheese but only if she doesn't have it again for at least 3 days. No yogurt for her.
DD2's main visable symptom is excema and spotty type rashes but she also had tummy pains and if she has too much, vomiting. We had struggles with the excema and rashes which completely went away when we found out that dairy was a problem.

Actually it's not about the protein at all. Yoghurt and cheese has active bacteria cultures which modify the lactose to release lactase making them easier to digest. Lacking in the enzyme lactase is what makes you lactose intolerant so eating foods with lactase present makes them okay to eat.

My son was diagnosed with cows milk protein allergy yesterday. The specialist said that everyone can tolerate different amounts. And it's a bit of trial and error. Maybe keep a food diary so you can monitor it, as some reactions can be 48hrs later. My son can have yoghurt, formula and cooked dairy.
