My one year old just threw up everywhere. I recently switched him. To 2% cow's milk. He was fine for a few weeks then tonight his stomach is hard and real round. He has a rash on his belly. What do I do???? He just fell asleep on me but I don't know what to give him to drink. He still gets up at like 3 am for a drink.

Allergy testing will answer that. My almost 2 yr old son had stuffy/runny nose cough breathing problems severe eczema for over a year. Once he got tested and we find he is allergic to dairy. We cut all dairy out of his diet completely and no more symptoms at all. Even the eczema is gone. Btw.. Milk allergy is totally different from . Lactose intolerant. Milk allergy affects immune system while intolerant affects digestive system. Keep that in mind and I highly suggest seeing an allergist

My son has a milk protien allergy. He had diarehha and a face rash and was very irritable. As soon as we took him off all dairy he was a different person. Soy milk can have an affect on kids that are allergic to milk as well. You can get a blood test/fece test done to see if they have a sensitivity.

My son was the same way, minus the getting sick part, until I cut cow's milk out when he was 21 months. He also had non-epileptic muscle spasms and severe eczema that went away about a week after cutting it out. We thought he had environmental allergies and asthma, since they were present since birth (he was formula fed, milk-based). I actually cut milk out for a completely different reason, then realized that everything disappeared.

Milk allergies can menefest in all sorts of ways normally as an upset stomach or constantly being sick. Also a baby that reacts with milk will normally refuse to drink it. My daughter had problems with baby formula and we went through several types before she finally settled on a milk and this was because the doctor gave us gaviscon powder in the milk to help settle her stomach.

Also you need to consider hayfever as an option because this is the age that the first signs would appear. Your baby has been covered by you for the first year of it's life and now we are entering spring again the pollen is high. My daughter was treated for hayfever at this age as she has an allergy to tree pollen. Hayfever symptoms are sneezing, water eyes, blotchy face, cough runny nose and general cold like symptoms but without the temperature. This year my daughter did not need her hayfever meds maybe it was a one off. If the symptoms persist take her to the doctors and find out either way.
