Lactose intolerance is not an allergy and there is no reason for your son to be on Easy Gest milk which still contains all the main cow's milk allergens. He can return to his normal milk feeds. If the doctor suspects an allergy then your son should be tested for possible food allergies before he is put on any special diet. In any case if it is thought that your baby has a nasal allergy problem he should have allergy tests to find out what is causing his allergies. It would be best to take your son to see a paediatric allergist. There are experts in all the main centres in SA.
