Milk allergies, like most food allergies, are relatively rare, and many of those allergies are in small children. Many people who think they are allergic to milk may instead suffer from some degree of lactose intolerance. Lactose intolerance is caused by an inability to properly digest the natural sugar lactose, which is found in milk and milk products. Symptoms of lactose intolerance include stomach cramping and diarrhea following consumption of dairy products, particularly fluid milk.
