I've had milk or milk products after and with onions for years and it hasn't had any ill effects yet. Sounds like one of those stories that get passed down through the generations. My grandmother banned water or other liquids with popcorn. That hasn't killed me either!

Sounds like a myth to me. As a lover of dairy products and oniony foods (I have good skin, although that's probably genetic) I'd say it's safe to have milk after onions.

Not the best combo to consume if you have stomach acid, otherwise you are safe...

50% of people in india consume direct or indirectly milk and onion together .. as for eg north indian cuisine . If it would be true then all would have been suffering from skin disease more specifically white patches on skin.
its definetely a MYTH . it causes due to some infection or its genetic . nothing to do with this combination .

Yup, they shouldn't be taken together, otherwise onion losees its benefits for sure, and milk can actually do harm in suspectable ppl in this combo. Intact water too should be restricted with onion intake, till it is assimilated. Raw onion with lime is quite good. Oil is also compatible with onion. Raw onion-lemon combo delays cataract and skin aging, and helps in coping with joint inflammation. But water intake should be kept to minimal till it is assimilated from small intestine (~2-2.5hours)
