I was wondering if there is anyone out there who has/had a baby who had a cows milk protien allergy and the baby's reaction was a rash??
My 6.5 month old bubby girl has a horrible rash all over her chest and tummy and a little on her temples (forehead). She has sensitive skin (like me), a bit of eczema. Dr's originally thought it was infected eczema, however I knew it wasn't - just didn't look like it - then it spread all over her little torso (front only) - it looks like measles! I was actually hoping when we went back to the Dr that they'd say 'oh yes, its chicken pox - or measles'...but no 'its a mystery' is what we got. So the process of elimination begins!
I have spoken to 2 friends who have babies with Cows milk protein allergies, however their babies reacted with vomiting and diahorrea. My little girl is well other than the rash.
I suppose I want to know - if your baby had a rash, how long did it take to start to go down once you quit the cows milk formula?
I feel horrible! I started to wean her about a month ago - gradual process. I still give her 2 breast feeds/day - then she has 2 - 3 bottles of formula. I was away from her for 24 hrs 1.5 weeks ago, so she had all formula and that was when I really noticed the rash come up (she also got constipated just to top it all off!). And since then it has just flared and spread.
I am so impatient with this - if it is cows milk protien that she's having the reaction to, then I just want to see the improvement (she has only been having Soy for 24 hrs....).
I'd love to hear your experiences (of cows milk protein related rashes)!
