Please check out my answer to Lou's question posted earlier on 17 March 2003. You need to have your child tested for food and other allergies so that you can eliminate contact with them. Also consult a clinical dietitian (phone (012) 998-5650 (mornings)) who will help you plan a balanced diet if the child is allergic to certain foods, e.g. milk or wheat.
