Q.

10 months girl with suspected cow milk protein allergy

My daughter is now 10 months .. when she was 3 weeks she was diangnosed with CMPA .. she had facial eczema and was vomiting frequently .. I was exclusively breastfeeding so I started a challenge test and there was no difference before and after the test .. now she's on Infatrini formula and she's fine and eating some dairy products as yogurt and other cow products .. but she catches colds recurrently and they leave her with secondary chest problems leading to nebuliser with salbutamol and sometimes Pulmicort.. I'm confused that she may have CMPA especially since she has sometimes loose stool and today she had sever diaper rash .. what's your opinion ?

It is difficult to be sure about an answer to your question. Ideally your baby should have had an allergy tests done to decide whether she is allergic to cow's milk or not. Her present problems do not appear to be due to an allergy, but are more likely to be due to repeated virus infections.Has she had an antibiotic lately as she seems to have developed a candida nappy rash. Treat her nappy rash with Nystatin or similar cream and give her a good probiotic every day for 4 weeks. Reuterina for infants 5 drops daily is recommended?

Does this probiotic need prescription or it's a shelf one ?
