Q.

red blotches coverin babies body

I am having endless skin problems with my 5 and half month old baby since birth. Various issues ie: allergic to diary, wheat etc. However, he had blood tests done 2 weeks ago and turns out he is not allergic to anything. Anyway, he started solids at 5 months and on Friday he had his 2nd Rotarix and 1st prevanar injection. Since Friday he has been sick, vomits his milk and his whole body is filled with red blotches. I called dr and he says I should use, Ruterui probiotic. The vomiting seems to subside, but the red blotches are getting worse. Please help. What can this be?
