    It depends on the nature of the "allergy". For lactose intolerant people then they'd get the ****s and feel a bit bad, it's not a true allergy though. For people actually allergic to it then, as above, it can manifest as skin conditions, mucus production, malaise, even homosexuality.

    You'll feel nauseous, abdominal pain and possibly diarrhoea - so don't drink it.

    A friend of mine on a camping trip who was lactose intolerant had some cows milk and was sick, felt ill for a while, but was then fine.

    Would you feel 'itchy' on the inside?
    Like usually when I have allergy flare-ups, my chin on the insiide gets really itchy.

    People who are lactose-intolerant generally feel bloated and get diarrhoea, because instead of the enzyme lactase breaking down the milk (which lactose-intolerant people don't create or create enough of) bacteria in the large intestine do it instead, producing gas and having other unpleasant side-effects.

    I don't think I'd even notice if I was allergic to milk - just looking at the stuff makes me feel sick. I'm picky about what I eat/drink and have weird aversions like that.

    Yep, pretty much this. If i have a large amount I get incredibly bloated/gassy, and will have diarrhoea. It's not a true allergy as its not the body which is causing the reaction, rather the bacteria that are eating the lactose and giving off hydrogen.

    i hate how people associate intolerances with allergies. yeah, intolerances are bad and you feel sick and everything, i'm not arguing with the facts.

    but allergies can be so much worse. my brother has a severe anaphylactic reaction to nuts, peanuts, lentils, chickpeas, sesame seeds, soya and some other legumes. if he even comes into contact with the oils of those foods his throat closes and his tongue swells up, and he dies.

    how can anyone put that on the same level as diarrheoa????

    OP if you really have an allergy to milk then when you drink it or milk products, your tongue and lips may start to itch or feel 'fizzy', or you may come up in red welts on your body, or you may even start vomiting. but if you really are that concerned go and see your GP instead of taking advice from this forum.

    Sorry, but I disagree with you here. I feel really sorry for your brother for what he has but you cannot belittle intolerances. I have coeliac disease which means I cannot eat any foods containing gluten. This may seem like nothing to you, but this is a long term disease which can lead to many other health problems, and even a small amount of gluten will damage my small intestine.

    The only problem there is that coeliac disease isn't an allergy or intolerance. It's actually an autoimmune disease.

    I am aware of that, thanks. It is an autoimmune disease, which makes a person intolerant to gluten, because it makes them ill. That's why I worded my original post the way I did.

    I'm lactose intolerant. If I drank milk (or more likely got really stoned and ate a **** load of Minstrels), I'd get stomach cramps and fart nastier smells than you could possibly imagine. It's quite disgusting so I try avoid it, though like every other human, I'm not infallible.
