Q.

RE Post 939 Sudden vomiting from milk - MMR?

Dear Paed

Well, lo and behold, changed over to Isomil 3 and the little guy slept through. First time in months! I''m quite curious to know whether a cow''s milk protein allergy develops over time getting worse the longer the exposure? or could it have been compounded by the MMR vacc? As far as I know the MMR can cause GI problmes? Should he now avoid all milk protein, ie in yoghurt as well?

Thank you for letting me know about your little son.The symptoms of cow's milk protein allergy can get more noticeable over time with increased exposure to milk and dairy products.The MMR immunisation is not the cause of your son's milk allergy.He should now avoid all dairy products.
