Theoretically, yes. Many times, people can develop intolerances to certain foods. If you think you have developed lactose intolerance, take a break from dairy for a while, and your body will 'forget' that it doesn't like that stuff. Lactose intolerance can also be helped with probiotics. While antibiotics kill bacteria, probiotics introduce 'good' bacteria into the body. Lactose intolerance could be worsened by the lack of good bacteria (that normally digest the lactose enzyme) in the intestines. for more info for non biased info
