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.
