hi parent
this is allergic reaction to lactose in cows milk better avoid cows milk to give him lactose free food consult a homeopathic Doctor who can give some solution.
Pediatrician Dr. Suryakanta Baraha's  Response
hello,
welcome to HCM
thanks for the query.
from the symptoms you described it seems to be milk protein allergy not lactose intolerance
you should put him on diary elimination diet.
milk substitute formulas are used to provide a complete source of nutrition. Milk substitutes include soy based formulas,oat milk
you have to give him formulations containing calcium so the long term deficiency of calcium can be avoided.
take care

This is a tough problem for parents.Some babies may have both and it can be validated only by the pediatrician through some test. I do not remember the name of the test but generally redness in skin after milk is more likely to be because of lactose intolerance and not protein.

Hi. My 7 month old baby gets rashes on her face when she is fed lentils, chicken or wheat flakes. Se is also suspected as having a cow s milk protein allergy as she was getting blood in her poop. She is due to have an allergy test in Jan 2012. I have been instructed not to give her any diary and that I stay away from dairy as well as I am still breast feeding her. She has not had any dairy since birth and is refusing to drink allergy management formulas from a bottle. She is now underweight for her age. Can you please advise if I can continue giving her something rich in protein like meat, lentils etc. as these are causing a rash on her face as well. Thanks

My son has a milk protein allergy and is on neonate. He takes 4oz every 3 hrs, he is 51/2 months old. We recently started him on solids with the ok from our doc. He is having a hard time digesting the solids and his symptoms are returning. We are using earth s best and beechnut because those brands are supposed to be easily digested. Not sure why he is still having such a problem.

My stool was like a tan color with mucus like stuff. I am lactose intolerant so not sure if that is part of it, since I had consumed a lot of dairy prior to that, with the use of Lactaid pills. Then a few days later it switched to diarrhea on and off with my stomach hurting and nausea. Now the diarrhea has stopped but my stools are still very soft, but very dark in color. What do you think this means?? Help!

About once a month he will wake me out of a dead sleep at night and say he feels like he is going to throw up. I m so frustrated and don t know what to do. I always think its the flu , but I know that can t be every month. Please help!

My son is 24 with Cerebral Palsy he has never had any problems with keeping weight on or eating. About 6-7 months ago he had a hernia surgery he has now went from weighing 175 lbs to 113 lbs. He is Lactose intolerant and no matter what he tries to eat--small quantities etc. he vomits always even with phenogrin medication . He just seen a nutritionist and they are wanting to put him on a clear liquid diet for 8 days to clean his stomach. I am trying to find some higher calorie, easily digestible, lactose free food that he can try to eat. Any suggestions of what we can try and maybe ask if his doctor is missing something?? I am afraid that he will starve to death.

I suffer IBS , coeliac disease and am lactose intolerant and have knowingly suffered these things the past 4-5 years. I am a 20 year old female. I also have an eating disorder . In the past 24 hours I ve barely eaten due to suffering flu-like symptoms and not feelin up to eating. Through out the day I have passed a lot of stool and the consistency has changed as the day progressed. They have all smelt quite offensive, it started dark, hard and I had trouble passing - constipation as usual. As the day got on the stool got softer and looser but was still hard to pass. I passed a lose soft stool, light brown in colour about 6:30pm and I did not pass stool again for another 8 hours which was green, watery diarrhea . I have had slight cramping a but nothin out of the ordinary. Yesterday I ate a lot of wheat and dairy-based products that were high in fat and sugar.... Does this have anything to do with it? Or is it related to my flu-like symptoms? Also, I became quite overheated before I passed the diarrhea, could his have contributed towards it? Passed it twice in forty minutes, but not very much the second time. Any help or advice as to what this is would be highly appreciated! Thanks.
