Cow’s milk allergy is the most common food allergy in infancy and childhood. The symptoms are often diverse and therefore not always clearly attributable to a cow’s milk allergy. This may affect the skin, the respiratory tract or even the gastrointestinal tract.
Often everything starts harmlessly with increased cradle cap or colic, which gets worse over time. In many cases, these symptoms are classified as characteristic complaints in infancy and early childhood and not immediately associated with an allergy.
And so very often painful weeks pass away with inconsolable screaming, stomach ache and irritated skin, until the diagnosis “cow’s milk allergy” stands.
