      Its an allergy to cow's milk, commonly called a dairy allergy, but for me it's only cow's milk, not egg or other milks. Goat's milk works well for cooking, but we most often use almond milk on cereal, etc., and in some cooking, too. We replace butter with coconut oil for baking, or olive oil for vegetables.
