Elecare and neocate and allimentium all caused skin rash and mucus in infant. What options are left to feed him?
Formula: Neutramigen, but it is similar to Alimentum. I have heard reports that sometimes using the ready to feed, not powder, helps. Have you considered that it might be soaps? There is corn in formulas, but I don't think there are any formulas without some form of corn syrup, corn maltodextrin, or corn syrup solids. An allergist may be able to see what it is. Banked breast milk might be another option. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

My toddler 19 month got eczema. I'm thinking may be its cow formula. So thinking to change her formula. Which formula is better soy or goat formula?
Either, but...: 1. Eczema is rarely caused by a food allergy. Nothing wrong with trying, but it probably won't help. 2. Children over 1 year old do not need "formula". You can buy regular goat milk, almond milk, soy milk, etc. 3. Any of these are fine nutritionally as long as they are only a minor part of the diet (less that 16 ounces a day). He/she should be getting mostly regular table food. ...Read more
