Here is a post relating to IgE mediated allergies written by Jeff Novick, RD:
in regard to the situation you described above, you do not have to go
through the process of doing a full elimination diet (or allergy
testing) as your main concern is one food, which we already know is
highly reactive and implicated in this situation. As you may know, there
are many health professionals, myself included, that beleive dairy is
the single worst food humans could be consuming and the one food we
would all eliminate from the food supply if we could.
full elimination diet does take time and effort because it is a slow
process. However, in regard to eczema, there is enough evidence to just
encourage any parent to just begin by eliminating dairy.

are many nutritionist that know dairy is bad for your health. Some
claim that it is good. Obviously, many of the nutritionists are very
is foods for cows and its composition is good for calves when they are
growing up. It has never been an ideal food for humans, and it is
detrimental for human health. I have shared plenty of resources to you,
and if you are interested of your health, and to stop exploiting
animals, you should be willing to study this. Please do.
