Milk Protein Allergy

Families of children and infants with milk protein allergy, an immune reaction to the protein found in cow’s milk and breast milk, struggle every day to ensure their children can grow and thrive. Besides causing severe discomfort when eating, milk protein allergy can cause hives, skin rash, coughing, wheezing or runny nose, vomiting, bloody diarrhea, stomach cramps and constant crying due to pain, making it impossible for children to consume natural, life-sustaining nourishment.

Medical foods and formulas can greatly reduce or even eliminate these symptoms in children and infants. Yet medical nutrition is costly, creating a financial burden families often must bear alone. Here you’ll find useful information on reimbursement as well as other potential sources of support to help reduce that burden.
