Causes of Allergies
baby’s digestive and immune systems are not mature. The intestines lack enzymes that break down cow’s milk proteins. They enter the bloodstream unchanged. The body recognizes them as malicious and produces specific antibodies to combat the “enemy” – an immune response arises. There are about 36 antigens in cow’s milk. Most often, caseins and milk whey proteins (alpha, beta-lacto globulin, bovine serum albumin, immunoglobulin) cause a pathological reaction.
Cow’s milk protein allergy
The baby fell ill: refuses to eat, there are rashes on the skin and digestive problems. You can suspect an allergy to cow’s milk protein if there is a reaction of two or three body systems at once:
Digestive problems. There is bloating, constipation, loose, frothy stools, blood or mucus in the feces, nausea, vomiting, increased gas, pain in the stomach.
Skin problems. Atopic dermatitis, urticaria, rash, redness, itching irritation, conjunctivitis, Quincke oedema.
Respiratory problems. It shows itself as runny nose, itching, sneezing, nasal congestion.
However, without visiting doctor and collecting complete clinical information, you should not make a diagnosis. Allergy to milk can be confused with lactose deficiency, reflux disease and various pathologies of the digestive system.
