Animal Allergies & Dairy

I've been searching through the internet and can't really find anything about this specific topic.  I have allergies to most animals; dogs, cats, horses, goats, pigs birds(feathers) and I also have a mild allergy to red meat.  If I'm allergic to an animal is it bad for me to have dairy products that come from the animal?  I don't have any bad side effects (that I'm aware of) if I eat cheese/dairy, I've never really drank milk so I can't say if that would have an effect on me.  I have, however, developed cystic acne over the past few years and wonder if this could be the issue.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Understand your concern. You may be allergic to animal or feathers as mentioned by you. But it is unlikely that you may also be allergic to dairy products. It may help to maintain a food dairy and keep monitoring your symptoms. This will help to narrow the search and avoid them. Further allergic testing may be worth looking into.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
