Strengthen the allergy to cow's milk can use nursing mother of a large amount of fresh milk and other products with higher allergenic properties and early cessation of breastfeeding.

Allergy to cow's milk can be manifested in different ways.

Less common in children under one year of allergies manifest as shortness of breath, cough, runny nose, conjunctivitis.

In cow's milk hydrolysates of milk protein is subjected to special treatment (hydrolysis) and its molecules are much smaller (milk is better absorbed) and reduced their sensitizing (which increases the body's sensitivity) capacity. Soy isolates mixtures are soya - hypoallergenic mixtures containing highly purified protein is soy.

If bottle-fed child is completely converted to a mixture based on hypoallergenic protein hydrolysates and soy isolate. All these compounds fall into three groups:

  • treatment (virtually allergen-free) - they are administered at high sensitivity to cow's milk protein (Alfaro, Nutrilon Pepto TSC, Nutrilak peptide MCT Tutteli peptide Frisopep);
  • Medical prophylactic - they are prescribed for moderate and low sensitivity to cow's milk protein (Nutrilak HA HA Hippie 1 and GA 2, Humana HA 1 and HA 2, HA Humana 0);
  • preventative - they are administered after the relief of symptoms of food allergy and for the prevention of food allergy (NAS HA).
