I have given him cow's milk occasionally before but only 2-3 oz per day (with no hives in response). last night he had a total of 6-7 oz of organic whole milk. He woke up more than usual last night crying (apparently in pain), and this morning he has hives. does is sound like lactose intolerance? what is the best substitute? Soy milk or lactose-free milk? Any other advice about this?
Hives is NOT lactose intolerance. that is a definite allergic reaction. However, there is the possibility that it may be something other than milk. has he has anything different lately?
