Soy Not Good Either: Food protein-induced proctitis caused by proteins from cow's milk, which are ingested through breast milk or standard cow's milk based formulas. Soy milk can cause similar symptoms. Treatment consists of complete elimination of cow's milk and soy from the diet. Breastfeeding is always best. Strict avoidance is key. Good news is that sensitivity resolves by one year of age in almost all infants.
