Rash after eating dairy
ISWIM posted:
For the past week or so I have noticed I am getting a rash on my abdomen right below my rib cage after I eat dairy products. It lasts anywhere from 20 mins. to an hour. I am lactose intolerant, but as long as I eat dairy in moderation I don't have a problem. I seem to get the rash more often when I eat cottage cheese and yougurt, but have gotten it after drinking a glass of milk. Since the rash goes away after awhile I was not too concerned about it, but since it's still happening it has me wondering. Is this something I should go to the doctor for? It's kind of hard when it does not last long.
Susan Evans, MD responded:

You're wise to notice the rash and its relationship to dairy products. Keep an eye on this, and if you notice any signs of the rash worsening, or if it occurs more often, or at other times, you probably want this to be evaluated in case it is a developing condition. Keep us posted.
