Q.

Allergies

Dear Doc

My 10 month old son is on NAN HA due to allergies (skin rashes - exzema etc).

At what age can he have allergy testing done, and what does the testing entail?

When can we try cow' s milk?

Thank you.

Your son can be re-tested for milk allergy at 12 months. This will involve having a skin test done for cows milk allergy [this is not painful] and a blood test called the RAST for cows milk allergy.
