Maybe a stupid question.....

Should I not be eating eggs? I am dairy free but have been eating eggs because I thought it was just cows milk dairy that you should avoid. Thoughts?

eggs are not dairy - dairy is from cows (possibly all cattle, as some people who can't take cows milk can't take goats milk etc)

yep what pp said BUT if dairy free didn't sort any issues then you might need to look at other intollerences

What Louisa said - dairy is dairy, but if you're finding that you're still having troubles there may be other intolerances at play. For example, I went dairy free for a month to see if it helped Dylan's eczema. It didn't, so I went back on it. Lo and behold, a year later we had him allergy tested and he has multiple allergies, which explains why dairy free didn't seem to help.
