Cheese allergy?

My father is allergic to cheese. NOT DAIRY. Let me rephrase that.


He can have milk, cream, sour cream, whipped cream, pretty much any dairy product, just not cheese. Im trying to figure out what he's allergic to in the cheese incase theres a kind of cheese he can eat, but looking it up is useless, every website says theres no such thing as only an allergy to cheese and its a dairy allergy and the milk proteins. The only other things he's allergic to are penicillin and amoxicillin. Any ideas?

    He isn't allergic to "cheese" (generic all forms of cheese) if he is not allergic to all the other diary ingredients.

    - If he's allergic to penicillin than it's likely he's allergic to all forms of blue cheese/gorgonzola because the blue is Penicillium mold.

    But mozzarella cheese is just milk and salt. If he isn't allergic to milk and not allergic to salt, he isn't going to be allergic to mozzarella.

    Hunch is right, blue cheese have bacteria to make them blue. English cheddar cheese is just milk curds nothing added.

    Sounds as if he's been eating the wrong kind of cheese.
