Nido 3 vs Isomil 3

I have an almost 3yr old daughter who was tested for allergies a year ago. Came up that she is allergic to peanuts, egg whites and cow''s milk/dairy. The peanuts was the highest and the other two were mild and she could have in moderation. She was on Isomil for more than a year, before I had her tested as she was always wheezy and my gut feeling had me changing her formula to a soya based one. She''s been perfectly fine besides the odd cold. Two weeks ago I bought Nido 3 to see how she will tolerate the milk and she seemed fine at first,but now she has a persistant cough which I''m not sure is caused from the cold she got from her brother. I gave her Celestamine for 3 nights which in the past would clear up any post nasal drip and cough,but this time around it''s not working. Would you say that its caused by the cows milk based Nido and should I rather stick to Isomil?

It does seem that your liitle daughter is still allergic to milk as her chest symptoms started soon after she strated on nido. Why not give her ordinary soya milk now instead of going back onto Isomil3.If she is on a good mixed diet she should be fine on this kind of milk at her age. Celestamine is a strong and long lasting cortisone combined with an old fashioned drowsy-causing antihistamine that is not usually given for a post nasal drip
