    My DS has cows milk protein allergy which results in eczema. We took him to an allergist and he was put on soy formula. It took at least a week before we started to see an improvement in his skin. What kind of rash is it? Is it eczema?

    Hi there OP. my DS came up with spots on his torso whenever he drank normal formula. Not raised spots but just.. Dots? If that makes sense.
    He had the same reaction with soy.
    I ended up seeing a paed and he prescribed neocate. This was before the stupid restrictions in terms of prescribing came into place. When the changes were made to prescribing neocate, DS was almost 12 months old, I gradually weaned him onto normal cows milk with the go-ahead from the paed. He had been on neocate for 6 months and he outgrew the allergy. No issues 12 months or more on

    Op, I found an old photo of the rash. It's not very clear though, I'm sorry. ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1372307905.930814.jpg

    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)!

    Wow exact thing happened to my DS (same age) 2 weeks ago when i began to wean himonto formula. Doc was clueless as well!
    Turns out- no allergy! we got given steriod cream and the redness went away 24hrslater. I kept him on just breastmilk for another 3 days untill the rash sleared up then introduced formula again 120mls at a time after a breastfeed. No issues. STAY AWAY FROM SOY. Keep to the one formula for 2 weeks.

    Basically his little immune system just went corrupt at the yucky foreign stuff in formula. Its alot for their little bodies to handle after being on just breastmilk. I mixed EBM into his bottles for a week so it was 100mls formula and 50mls BM. Helped with the constipation that follows too.

    That rash is nasty. Poor little thing.
    I've given my lo pepti junior. ..I'm not sure what was suggested but if you can slowly wean overt Bub might drink more of it. I basically mixed 1/3 pepti with 2/3 ebm or other formula. .then half half then 2/3 pepti etc. .. my Bub didn't like pepti and we've moved to s different one but I've found slowly weaning them over with taste I was more successful.

    Agree with TamTam - start by mixing some formula with EBM to get your DD used to it.

    My DS2 has just been prescribed Pepti junior too, he's got CMPI plus soy & wheat allergy (skin prick). We had steroid cream for his rash that worked well, but the rash would keep coming back. Here's a pic of his face and it wasn't even the worst day

    I'm slowly weaning 1 feed every few days to ensure I don't end up with mastitis, so no real changes yet. Hope to report good news soon!

    Ooo that looks sore - poor little monkey. We're heading to specialists soon for allergy tests - so we'll see if she's allergic to anything else. Our GP is pretty sure she has the CMPI with a cross allergy to soy (quite common). She on a pretty high steroid cream which cleared up her eczema overnight and her body rash seems to be slowly going down. But the cream is no good for long term use at her age. Fingers crossed she grows out of it all!

    another question....how strict do I need to be with cooking with dairy?? Can I make white sauce with her formula perhaps - but still make a rue with butter? Or no good?....how about butter/marg on toast fingers? No?

    I should add - I am keeping her diet very simple for now (fruit & veg) until we have had allergy testing / but I was just thinking ahead (with the white sauce etc.).....she does love to suck on toast fingers & rusks though!
