What causes cows’ milk protein allergy?

Cows’ milk allergy is caused by the immune system reacting to the protein found in cows’ milk and other dairy products. Infants with a family history of allergic disease are at higher risk of having cows’ milk allergy. Being allergic to cows’ milk is not the same as having lactose intolerance.
