Q.

rash


Hi Doc

Is it possible for a child to have aczema without the child being allergic to milk?

my son of 11 months has been on Nan and he is healthy and fine..but he has been having rashes around his face and neck and he stratches himself a lot at times...can i conclude that he is allergic to milk or its just eczema?

please advise...should i continue with nan or change his milk even though hes fine with it and with no problems but the rash?

many thanks

Many babies with eczema are not allergic to milk but are allergic to other foods such as wheat,eggs or peanut.Try your baby on a low allergy formula such as NAN HA and see if his skin rash improves.
