Q.

RE: Milk allergy

Thanx Doctor, for your respond. I also feel that this is due to a milk allergy. They did test him for milk and soya allergies when he was 2 yr old, and the tests was negative...His Ped say that tests at this young age (2yr) is not always reliable, and that we could do follow up tests when he is older.....So am I correct to assume that he can still be allergic to milk even if he had tested negative 1 year ago?

There is no doubt from your clear history that your son is allergic to cow's milk. If you like your doctor can repeat the test. He must request a RAST test for cow's milk. It would be worthwhile doing the soya test at the same time. He is certainly not too young for the test.
