I used to break out in hives (inside and out) when I drank cows milk; I almost suffocated when it was first given to me at age 1. Then I couldn't eat ANY dairy products for a while: when kids had cupcakes for birthdays, they had to scrape the frosting off of mine. No ice cream. I used to pur orange juice on my cereal instead of milk (doesn't taste THAT weird with Special K, but it definitely tastes a little weird). I wasn't allowed to have yogurt or yogurt/chocolate covered pretzels. Now, I can have dairy just fine without breaking out into hives, but I'm still a bit lactose intolerant because it wreaks havoc on my intestines. I do love ice cream though....
