Small child, having breakouts on face. Feeding formula changed. Allergy related?

My 5 month old son is breaking out on his face after he drinks his bottle. I believe it s the change in the kind of formula. I am trying to pinpoint if it s an allergy? First three ingredients of the milk that he broke out with were: Nonfat Milk, Lactose and Vegetable oil. First three ingredients of the formula he was on prior with no breakout wa: Corn Syrup Solids, Hydrolyzed nonfat milk, and whey protein concentrate.

Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

Yes, it could be an allergy .But do continue the feed with strict observation as the baby's digestive system can get habituated .

Do give him juices along with the new food this helps in digestion.

Thanks for using this service.
