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.
