Cow’s milk allergy it can also be experienced by infants who consumed breast milk (ASI). This may have occurred, because the milk supply is affected by the food-food that is consumed by the mother. When a family has a history of allergy flair, this problem can be reduced in children even in infants who consume breast milk.

“Typically, foods that trigger allergies consumed by nursing mothers may cause allergies in infants. Cause skin rashes if the milk stuck to the skin. Usually the rash reactions often occur in the baby’s cheek, “said Dr Zakiudin Munasir, Sp. A (K), Chairman of the Division of Allergy Immunology, Section of Child Health, Faculty of medicine / RSCM in Jakarta.

Actually, to be sure the baby has an allergic disease or can not do allergy testing or skin prick test with the test Allergo Radio sorbent test (RAST), but it is effectively performed in children who are aged over 3 years.

Because, says Dr Zaki, skin sensitivity is working properly. “It would be more effective if it could be a baby for blood tests to determine the level of immunoglobulin E (IgE). IgE antibodies can cause the release of histamine, a substance that causes a variety of allergic reactions in the body, “he said.

Not only that, for breast-feeding mothers can also prevent allergic reactions in infants with food allergens to abstinence for 2-4 weeks.

“Foods to dipantang include, cow’s milk, eggs, peanuts and seafood”, “he said. If during a test trial abstinence from food allergens, the child no longer has a rash or other allergic reaction, then certainly, the culprit of allergies The food is 4.

Approximately 2 to 7.5 percent of infants are allergic to cow’s milk. If not immediately treated, these allergies can interfere with development of the child.

“Allergies can be suppressed, but can not be eliminated completely. And, milk allergy is not a barrier growing children if done proper treatment, “said Dr. Zakiudin Munasir, Sp. A (K), Chairman of the Division of Allergy Immunology, Section of Child Health, Faculty of medicine / RSCM in Jakarta Wednesday, April 27, 2011.

Cow’s milk allergy may occur because children are sensitive to cow’s milk protein components or in the process of making milk. Sensiitif body and milk protein are considered the enemy. If the body was regarded as an enemy, then the body will begin to react in the form of allergy.

In children who are hypersensitive, these proteins can trigger the formation of antibodies called immunoglobulin E (IgE). These IgE antibodies, causing the release of histamine, a substance that causes a variety of allergic reactions in the body.

Clinical symptoms will appear within one hour (fast reaction) or after one hour (slow reaction) after consuming cow’s milk protein. To recognize the symptoms, and immediately went to the doctor to get proper advice how to handle cow’s milk allergy.
