My mother was recently diagnosed with allergy to milk but not to boiled milk. What is the difference ? Does that means she can have cheese?
many thanks

Hi Rana2013, That's really odd. The only thing I can think of is that there must have been something in the milk before it was boiled, and that is what your mother is allergic to. This is just my guess, so I suggest that you visit your doctor to find out the cause of her allergy. Good luck!

I have heard of that in the case of egg -- some are allergic to raw egg, but not cooked. From what I have read, the cooking process somehow changes the proteins. Your mother should check with her allergist to see if cheese would be safe or not.
