My son turned red on his face a while ago when he was talking formula. since his birth, i was breastfeeding exclusively and had to introduce formula when i went back to work. we changed the formula, he was on lactogen and we turned to nan. and now since being on nan, he''s got rash on the sides of the face and the skin on the sides of the face is ligther than the rest of his face. i took him to a paeditriacian who said i should change to Nan hypoaallergenic and he is still with the rash. do u think maybe i should completely take him off the animal milk and put him on soya?

Yes, this is a good idea. It is very likely that your baby is allergic to cow's milk. Try a soya formula. You do not mention your baby's age, but if he is younger than 6 months you need to start him on Isomil1. If older than 6 months start on Isomil2.Make sure that he does not have any baby cereals that contain milk such as Cerelac.
