Can an allergic reaction to dairy impact one behavior? Sure. Is that the case with your son? There is only one way to tell. Eliminate dairy from his diet, and see if his behavior improves. If it does, try re-introducing it back into the diet, and watch for negative reactions. This way you can be certain whether or not dairy is the cause for his bad behavior.

People can tell you their opinions and ideologies, but you and your son are the only ones who an really answer that. Has his behavior been bad the whole time he's been back on dairy, or is it recent? If it's recent, why do you think dairy suddenly started causing problems again?

Could you try stopping dairy and seeing if his behavior improves? And then start it again and see if his behavior gets worse?

How old is your son? Can he tell you anything about how he feels when he eats or doesn't eat dairy?
