Diagnosing CMA

Diagnosing CMA


Although cows’ milk protein is one of the most common paediatric food allergies it can be difficult to diagnose. The symptoms are often treated in isolation without understanding the underlying cause.


Most babies with cows’ milk allergy (CMA) experience a range of symptoms, including digestive problems (such as diarrhoea, vomiting, constipation and reflux), skin problems (such as urticaria, hives and eczema, respiratory symptoms (such as persistent cough and wheezing) and generic symptoms (such as tiredness, problems sleeping or crying).


With such a wide range of symptoms, recognising CMA can sometimes be a challenge. Learn more about diagnosing CMA below.
