Yes, probiotics can help!
There are many different kinds available in many different
locations. It's best to start with a lower dose and work your way up. You may experience extra gas until your body gets used to the probiotic.
A few examples:
Acidophilus Pearls - available at many grocery stores and drug stores
Culturelle - available at many grocery stores and drug stores
Pro-Bil - available online
Jarrow-Dophilus - available online
Primadophilus Reuteri - available online
GNC has a few different types - watch out for FOS as an ingredient - it caused me LOTS of gas :(
Make sure to check ingredients for any dairy (since you're intolerant) and any added sugars.

probiotics - we've been discussing it a lot lately.
