8 wk old milk/soy protein allergy -on neocate, &allergic to rice. Showed similar reaction to nutra that contained rice/corn starch-allergic to starch?
Milk Allergy: Allergies are due to a reaction to protein. Corn is a starch or carbohydrate. If you infant reacted to nutra, it would not be from reacting to the starch. I assume the reaction was either eczema or bloody stools, not gas or a change in stools. If the reaction was not eczema or bloody stools, your baby may be intolerant and not allergic. ...Read more
Positioning: What is the age of the child? If older than 3 months and if severe GERD I would consider adding rice cereal 1 tablespoon per 4 oz of the formula to thicken the feed. In a baby less than 2 months I would try positioning in a 45 degree position after feedings for an hr to see if it helps. Fomula switching will not improve GERD if that is the correct diagnosis. ...Read more

Hydrolyzed : Milk protein allergy shows up in babies fed formula who have bloody stool and failure to thrive. In this instance your pediatrician can recommend a hydrolyzed formula. However, breast milk should also be easily digested in this case and would be the best option. Many people mistake colic for milk allergy. Colic is rarely improved by changing formula. 50% allergic to cow milk are allergic to soy. ...Read more
Elemental formulas: For those who become intolerant to bovine and soy protein, there are elemental formulas that contain predigested proteins that work.

Work with your ped to find one that works for your kid.All are difficult. ...Read more
Rare: Most of the time people with cow's milk allergy cross react to goat and sheep milk. The casein proteins share 87-98% of the same Amino Acids across all 3 species. Therefore it is possible to only be allergic to goat or sheep, but not very likely. Goat and sheep milk are not safe substitutes for people with anaphylactic reactions to cow's milk. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My 4 month old baby has an allergic reaction to milk formula and has switched to soy without problems. When should he have an allergy test?
No rush if soy OK: Was the reaction skin, respiratory or gastrointestinal (gi)? Was there blood in the feces? If symptoms were completely GI & associated with pallor or floppiness think enterocolitis. This non-ige mediated milk allergy reaction may persist for several years. Only valid test is oral challenge carefully performed by an experienced allergist. For skin & respiratory symptoms skin or blood test at 1 year. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What kind of specialist should I get for soy, peanut & histamine diet so I won't get an allergic reaction and lose weight.
A dietitian, not a: physician, most likely. Histamine= a hormone made internally (not in food) & induces itching & capillary dilatation/redness; i.e. allergic response. Also, what people have "allergic responses" to on their skin, vs. their mouth, vs. their pharynx, versus in blood, etc, vary quite widely with no clear correlation with one another. Yet people routinely assume that skin tests are a "Gold Standard" ...Read more

Later, they can get baby acne, which resembles teen acne, but baby acne spots generally don't break open. A pediatrician or dermatologist can look at the rash to help decide what it is. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

3week old has been on enfamil Newborn and Soy formulas. Dr just switched him to Nutramigen but he's just as gassy and spits up more often. Any help?
Talk to your doctor: It can take about a week or so to find out if the new formula will work better for your baby. Gassiness and spitting up are usually related to how your baby feeds, more than the type of formula. Hold him upright as much as possible during feeds, and burp him frequently. Don't lie him down or put him in the carrier right after feeding. Talk with your doctor if he isn't doing better. ...Read more
What should I feed a toddler with milk allergies that is very picky and just wants his bottle of soy formula?
Finger foods: Offer small servings of finger foods- crackers, pieces of fruit or veggies, pieces of meat, rice/noodles/potatoes- that your child can pick up and feed himself. Stop the bottle- if your child is over 1 year old, it can damage the teeth. Give milk in a cup at meal times and water at other times. Many kids are picky at this age- don't make it a battle- just offer healthy choices. ...Read more
Skin test for food allergies had a +2 reaction to milk and +to soy blood test came back negative still have issues w/milk what do i do ?
Avoid it!: Allergy tests can be very useful but are not without a margin of error. Listen to your body, if a particular food does not agree with you, avoid it and find other foods that will provide the nutrients you are missing. The tricky thing with eliminating milk is making sure you are getting enough Vitamin D. Calcium and protein are other considerations in planning your diet. Best wishes! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

No: Your shots are likely for airborne allergens and not for foods. Even then, it will take months to reduce your allergic symptoms. Allergy shots or sublingual drops for food allergens remain experimental at this time and results thus far have been inconsistent. If you are allergic to peanut or soy, don't eat them unless OKd by your allergist. ...Read more
