Brief Answer: Try soya based isomil Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for writing to healthcare magic. If your kid is intolerant to cows milk as well as zerolac , you can try isomil which is a soya based product. Also give plenty of rice based food. Wishing your kid the very best. Regards Dr Arun

Brief Answer: yes, it is. Detailed Answer: Yes it's milk allergy. Hb is to find out if she has anemia which can happen due to prolonged cow milk allergy. It can develop any time, not necessarily immediately after cows milk introduction. Continue bifilac and mintonia as advised. Dr Arun
