Does your kid have a milk allergy or lactose intolerance? Here’s the difference between the two

Most parents haven't even heard of an allergy to milk solids. For that matter, neither have several doctors in India. So a child who suddenly bursts out in rashes or starts throwing up for no reason is rushed to the hospital and put on antihistamine, but no one realises why it's happening. In India, milk is set on a nutritional pedestal, so no mother even questions whether it could be causing an adverse reaction in her kids. The incidence of lactose intolerance (which is totally different from milk protein allergy), too, is surprisingly increasing in Indian children. This infographic tells you exactly what the symptoms of each are, why they're caused and what you should avoid feeding your child in both cases. Take a look.
