Cows milk protein allergy?
She has a persistent nappy rash despite lots of no nappy time, cloth diapers, frequent changing and creams..
Please pm me studies? Or are these regarding formula?? I'm not interested in turning to formula unless things get significantly worse.

There is a useful algorythm here; http://www.biomedcentral.com/content...-7288-36-5.pdf
This is also useful;
For me my baby's reactions to breastfeeding were instantaneous, in that she would flush and get hives and then vomit if I ate something she reacted to, within about 15 -45 minutes of me eating it, which made it easyish to spot. Was trickier for daycare, as the expressed milk could have anything in it and she used to worry them by reacting randomly. And her reactions were spectacularly colourful. She immediately gets a nettle like rash on her hands and chest and bright red spots all over. And then gets itchy.
Have you tried telfast? I do give her antihistamines regularly. I figure I would rather her have a small dose of antihistamine than be really itchy or eat a very bland diet. Works for us.

My DS has a diagnosed milk allergy. He was diagnosed at around 7 months and only due to severe eczema. He lost a lot of weight very quickly, he went from the 98th to the 50th percentile in very short period of time.
There are a couple of types of milk allergies. The first is an instantaneous reaction, this shows up on the prick test. The other my DS has, this develops over time and it's like a build up in his system until it displays phsically - for us we had the eczema show and he was going off his bottles and losing weight. This does not show up on the prick test. We got fast tracked within 4 days to an allergy specialist and had the prick test which showed he had no other allergies.
He is on a soy formula and we have been told he will most likely grow out of it around 2 years. He has no other dairy but still does have an occasional but very mild show of eczema.
TBH if you're worried go and see a paed and check your DD's weight, that was the real indicator for our specialists.

Weight loss is different from not gaining though. Dropping down centiles may not always be a sign of a problem. My well, bar the usual coughs and colds, not allergic to anything, breastfed older daughter dropped from 75th to 10th percentiles and didn't gain a gram between 6 and 10 months. It was a bit alarming at the time but I was lucky enough to have very sensible MCH nurses who didn't worry about it. but you have to look at the whole picture. She didn't have eczema or anything else wrong with her.
