Daughter allergic to milk

My daughter is allergic to mlik - I was told this when she was 6 weeks old. Since then I give her a little bit of milk every now and then to see if she has out grown the allergy.

I have noticed lately that she always has a rash on her elbows and her face. The crech said that they do not give her milk products. Her face has red dots on them - they get as big as a mosketo bite and they make a crust. I have creame that the GP prescribed and it helps take away the crust but not the rash.

yesterday she got a red rash all over she neck, shoulders and face and with in 20 mins it went away as if there was nothing.

I gave her kids celedtamine.

What could it be and is there a test I can do on a 7 month old to see what she is allergic to?

Your baby appears to be allergic to milk. You are strongly advised not to give her any milk or dairy products now. She seems to have eczema which is an allergic rash in babies. Keep her on a soya based milk now such as Isomil2.
She can be tested for allergies now using the RAST test, speak to your paediatrician about having these tests done. Do not give your baby Celestamine which is a poweful cortisone medicine.
