Advised to use aptamil soya milk for 6 month old for reflux problem, has rashes. Any alternate ?

My GP has told me to buy aptamil soya milk for my six month daughter because she has reflux problems and keeps coming out in a rash . She hasn t put much weight on and he thinks she may have an intolerance to dairy. He is referring her to a paediatrician. I cannot find any superstore or chemist that stock aptamil soya. Could you recommend another soya milk to buy. Thank you YYYY@YYYY

You have to clarify the following -
1. Soya milk is not the treatment for reflux /
2. It is given specific conditions like lactose intolerance, cow's milk protein allergy etc
3. Kindly visit your Paediatrician; get the child evaluated and then change the milk.
4. There are several other preparations of soya milk, apart fromvaptamil (You can find in suprmarkets)
Good luck
