Hi, my 1 year old baby began drinking whole milk on Dec 16th. Since then, she has not been sleeping well, her stool is white in color and she has developed a terrible diaper rash. Before whole milk she was drinking Similac Sensitive (lactose-free). Two days ago I switched her back to the Similac and her diaper rash has cleared and her stool color looks normal again. Do you think she is lactose intolerant? What milk should I feed her?

my daughter is living in a dorm on college campus this year and has experienced rashes, fever, headaches, body aches and now suffers from lack of ability to finish her thoughts and suddenly is struggling testing. The campus found mold in her room and CO2 levels at 1250-1500 and claim they have resolved these issues. However, the memory loss just started and when she left town this past weekend, her fever and aches and rash disappeared. Now she has returned to her room and has a fever and headache. What could be causing this and should we push to move her to a different dorm room for the remainder of the semester?
