Recent information on milk allergy

The World Allergy Organization's Diagnosis and Rationale for Action against Cow's Milk Allergy (DRACMA) Guidelines is an excellent summary of the world's literature.  To simplify this 105 page document, read through the gray-shaded boxes at the beginning of each section.  I'm not going to reprint the information.  However I am going to strongly encourage interested people to read this article.  It was published in 2010 and so the latest published articles through 2009 have been included.
Cheers, from your Allergy Dude!

There are many children detected with this allergy and it is a hard choice for mothers supply supplementary foods as nutritious and easy.Is soy milk also a solution?

Yes. Cow milk comes from a mammal, whereas soy milk comes from soy beans. The odds of a cross-reactivity allergy is low. If children have an allergic tendency, then they may develop an allergic + ST or clinical reaction to both, but this is not from cross-reactivity, as in from similar protein structures.
