The associated issues can either appear immediately (within minutes) or be delayed for up to a few days after consuming dairy or foods containing cow's milk protein. You may also see cow's milk protein allergy referred to as the acronyms "CMA" and "CMPA." The "P" in CMPA stands for protein because it's the protein in cow's milk that is linked to the allergy.
