I made the cream cheese muffins this morning and had a couple. I am now coughing and hacking. I'm thinking back on having yogurt and cottage cheese and occasionally coughing then. Maybe an allergy? I see my doc in a month and he's pretty open minded about LC.

ask the doc, of course, but I don't think real food allergies are expressed in coughing. it's normally a swelling of the lips or back of the throat, I think. it could just be these things irritate you or get your saliva flowing in a way that makes you cough, not the same thing as an allergy, necessarily. good luck.

Dairy products are known to be mucous producing, and I've known people who had a 'sensitivity' to dairy that resulted in coughs because of the excess mucous they suddenly experienced if they ate dairy products.

I don't eat dairy normally, but I recently had 10 days on antibiotics, and I followed it with ten days of eating Greek yoghurt to try to revive some of the good intestinal flora that the antibiotics would have wiped out.

I noticed a marked increase in mucous which I attributed to the yoghurt because it was gone when I'd finished with it.
