I'm actually allergic to dairy- allergic, not intolerant. I can eat it, but risk breaking out in hives, or getting a migraine, or bad heartburn. I avoid ice cream, milk, yogurt, etc. But cheese...cheese is my weakness. Cheese is the one dairy food that I'm like, are hives worth it? Yes. LOL. So I feel you, I really do. I do avoid it most of the time, but it's an addiction.
