Taking "Allergic Action" for Healthier Children

Why a Milk Allergy Could Mean Something More
Posted at 10:44 AM, Jul 15, 2019

Allergies are on the rise, especially food-related allergies in infants and children. Cow's milk allergy (CMA) – an immune reaction to the proteins found in cow's milk – is particularly prevalent in the United States. Infants with suspected CMA experience mild-to-moderate allergic reactions and are more susceptible to other allergies later in life – a phenomenon known as the "Allergic March."

By understanding the allergic march, we are more likely to reduce the chances of other future allergies. Pediatric Allergist and Immunologist Dr. Jonathan Malka joins us to discuss the rise of infant allergies, the link between CMA and future allergies, and share how parents can take 'Allergic Action' today to promote a happier tomorrow.
