People sensitive to dairy products should be aware of the adverse reactions it can cause. The conditions which can occur include eczema and migraine.

Stilton and gorgonzola, mature cheddar and all the ripened cheeses can cause migraine due to the presence of tyramine.

Cottage cheese, Cream cheese and Fresh goat milk's cheese are less likely to cause migraine.

People who are allergic to pencillin may have some reactions to blue cheese.
