CMPA (dairy allergy) program 

We will be with you every step of the way in overcoming your childs dairy allergy or intolerance. With our systematic evidence based protocol, we will ensure you feel supported until your child has outgrown the milk allergy. If there are other suspected allergies , we will recommend the appropriate action. 

Do you feel your child may have a suspected cows milk protein allergy?

Cows' milk allergy (CMA), also called cows' milk protein allergy, is one of the most common childhood food allergies. It is estimated to affect around 7% of babies under 1, though most children grow out of it by the age of 5.

There are 2 main types of CMA:

  • Immediate CMA – where symptoms typically begin within minutes of having cows' milk

  • Delayed CMA – where symptoms typically begin several hours, or even days, after having cows' milk

Symptoms of cows' milk allergy

Cows' milk allergy can cause a wide range of symptoms, including:

  • skin reactions – such as a red itchy rash or swelling of the lips, face and around the eyes

  • digestive problems – such as stomach ache, vomiting, colic, diarrhoea or constipation

  • hay fever-like symptoms – such as a runny or blocked nose

  • Eczema that does not improve with treatment

Occasionally CMA can cause severe allergic symptoms that come on suddenly, such as swelling in the mouth or throat, wheezing, cough, shortness of breath, and difficult, noisy breathing.

Treatment for CMPA

A milk allergy is the body's abnormal response to the proteins found in cow's milk. Milk allergy is most common among infants and young children. As they get older, many children will outgrow a milk allergy. To stay away from foods that contain milk products, you must read food labels.

Treatment involves removing all cows' milk from your child's diet for a period of time, re-introducing and then working your way through a ladder for tolerance. If your child is exclusively formula fed, a specialised formula will be prescribed.
