This is a difficult question because babies who are allergic can have many symptoms. Early symptoms of a food allergy especially allergy to cow's milk may include vomiting and diarrhoea. Other early signs that your baby is allergic is the skin rash called eczema especially on the baby's cheeks and neck at first.It is always an itchy rash. Other signs are a blocked nose with a watery discharge from the baby's nose.
