my 10 month son has sores, not many but as those few heal then the other few appear, could this be an allergy, i don' t have any but his father has nut allergy. so far he does not eat anything that has nuts, the other thing he is still on NAN perlagon from birth, it does not have 1 or 2, can i still continue with it?

This may be an allergy to mosquito or flea bites but I cannot be sure without being able to see him.It does not sound like a food allergy.Another possibility is an infection of his skin such as scabies. Please ask your doctor or clinic nurse to see your baby.Keep him off all nuts especially peanuts with the family history of nut allergy.He can stay on the NAN Pelargon until he is 12 months old then change to a growth formula or simply give him regular full cream cow's milk.
