New form of specific immunotherapy has recently been developed, with increasing evidence of success: sublingual immunotherapy, given by drops of allergen solution under the tongue. The initial regimen of increasing doses (see the previous answer) still has to be given in hospital by allergy specialists, but maintenance doses can be administered by the patient at home. It is not as effective as conventional immunotherapy but the side effects are less severe. Most of the research work has been done in Italy but there are also large trials underway in the USA.
Ost of the symptoms that our bodies produce as a way of telling us that something is wrong are not specific; that is, the same symptoms may be produced by a wide range of different problems or diseases. Because of this, your doctor cannot tell what is wrong with your daughter just from her symptoms. It sounds as if milk is certainly the cause, but whether her problem is an intolerance or an allergy will be difficult to tell without some form of testing. ) The symptoms of milk intolerance (diarrhoea and abdominal discomfort) tend to occur only if relatively large amounts of milk are taken (small amounts are usually no problem) and the condition is often temporary.
The symptoms of milk intolerance (diarrhoea and abdominal discomfort) tend to occur only if relatively large amounts of milk are taken (small amounts are usually no problem) and the condition is often temporary. If a true allergy to milk is the problem (this usually occurs in younger children), the symptoms will occur even if only a tiny amount of milk is taken. However, the symptoms can be the same as those of milk intolerance. Although my advice to you would be the same whichever the problem was – to avoid milk in your daughter’s diet – I think that it is important to find out whether she has an allergy.
