Formula &  Allergy

My LO is 20 months old and althought her RAST tests came back negative for paediatric foods, grass, mite, mould etc.
She is on Soya milk (Isomil 2) but do give her yoghurt etc. As i find NAN etc makes her flemmy. She is on singulair and zyrtec on recommendation from Dr as she suffers from chronic coughing and wheezing and chest infections (possible asthma)
I would like to know when can i start weening her off her bottle of formula completely ??
How long should she be on singulair and zyrtec (been on 6 month)
What can i give her to get rid of flem?

There is no need to continue using Isomil 2, your daughter can drink regular soya milk which you will find in most supermarkets.She definitely seems to have asthma and should continue on Singulair and Zyrtec until her symptoms are fully controlled. The Singulair will help her to clear the mucous from her chest.
