Milk allergy is very common in adults.

Fact

Milk allergy is much more common in children than in adults. However, most children outgrow the allergy by 2 or 3. Symptoms of milk allergy include hives, vomiting and breathing problems after consuming a dairy product. Many adults may experience symptoms similar to milk allergy, as adults often have trouble digesting the sugar in milk. This is called "lactose intolerance." It isn't a true allergy. The symptoms of lactose intolerance are bloating, cramping, nausea, gas and diarrhoea.
