    “Wanna shit” is a bit of an understatement for what happens, but yeah, just take a 9000 unit lactase pill every 30 minutes while consuming it and you’ll be fine. Or maybe two pills if you’re eating a LOT of cheese.

      Ripened cheese (eg cheddar, Emmental, Monterey Jack, Parmesan, Brie…) usually does not have any significant amount of lactose left. The ripening process gets rid of it. If you are lactose intolerant you just need to avoid fake/processed „cheese“ and fresh cheeses (eg mozzarella, ricotta, cream cheese). That said, taking lactase pills when it’s not necessary will not hurt you, just your wallet.

          If you can get lactose free milk where you live (which in and of itself is a godsend), then you can make lactose free mozzarella from it, just follow online videos for meeting your own mozzarella (it takes like 30 mins and you can freeze it)

        Interestingly parmesan in any quantity over a couple of grams still messes me up, it really depends on the person

          Have you considered histamine intolerance? Real Parmesan should have next to no lactose left. Generally longer aging means less lactose, but more histamine. And Parmesan is aged at least 12 months.

      Also might be worth looking into products made from A2A2 milk. My friends are lactose intolerant and they can drink and eat products made from A2A2 without pills or any problem.
