 Oh, it's not really an allergy, rather an intolerance (even if it's quite severe): I am lactose intolerant. It also gives me severe stomach cramps and I even ended up throwing up in public once because of some hidden lactose in a restaurant dish that wasn't supposed to contain any! I tell you, it's not fun! Did you know that most food contains lactose?! Apart from cheese, milk, cream, yogurt, ice-cream...I am not allowed to eat most cookies, hamburger, chips (!), sausages, smoked ham, chocolate (!!!!), sandwiches bread and other foods I can't remember of right now... Still I am glad I finally found out what's that made my life so miserable after months of trying selective diets!  [Error: unknown template qotd]

That sounds really horrible =/ I have an intolerance to onions and it can also be quite hard to avoid them as they're used to flavour so many dishes. But lactose must be a hard one to live with =/

it's not easy, not really! But I wouldn't say it's that was far worse before I found out, because I would feel sick then and didn't know what was causing it...that was horrible, indeed!!!! I am lucky cause I now know what's that giving me stomach cramps and the rest, but still hard to find anything safe for me to eat, especially when eating out and when travelling abroad. I had quite a hard time in England with food!!!! :-P

what do onions do to you? That would be pretty hard to live without them at all...not that I fancy 'em, not much...but I agree with you: they are used to flavour many dishes!!!!

I am also lactose intolerant. When i want to have milk I take a lactase suppliment or get lactose free milk, now I dont know weather you have any of that available but I would think that somehow if you really wanted it someone could ship the suppliments to you.

I drink soy milk that is good at taste, so I am pretty much allright when at home. But in Italy not every cafe has soy milk to make up for real milk... And I am taking lacdigest pill as a lactase suppliment but with cakes it won't really help...I think my intolerance is pretty severe.
