I was just wondering as to be honest im completly dumb on the matter. Are lactose intolerance or milk allergies passed through genes. I have lactose intolerance and milk protein intolerance. I didnt get this off any members of my family. Whats got me thinking is that my 20 months old nephew is displaying signs of lactose intolerance. He is fine with baby formula but when given cows milk it festers and curdles in his stomach giving him terrible wind until he throws it up and it has a cottage cheese consistency and stinks rotten. Also ecsma (sp.) and blistery skin. This is a lot like what I go through and I was just wondering if he has just randomly developed this or if he could have got it from me via his mother (my sister). He has only recently been tried with cows milk but didn't have any affects other then swelling from formula. He also blisters when he eats something with milk in.
