Hi all this is my first time posting, I am in need of some help. I am a first time mom and my son who's 5 months has been getting this severe rash all over his body his doctor wanted me to try this cream and when that didn't work and the rash only got worse I took him again to see his doctor so then his doctor stated it may be a allergic reaction to cow's milk. I've been giving him enfamil Infant formula since he's been born, so not sure why he's having a reaction now. But his doctor said try the nutramigen hypoallergenic formula also a enfamil product it helps those that are allergic to cow milk... Well my son is refusing to eat it I've been trying since 11am this morning and his last feeding was 9am and it's currently 4pm. we have also tried similac Alimentum and he refused that as well, Now hes just rejecting the bottle because he knows. He was crying so much because he's hungry so he finally fell asleep. I just feel so helpless and don't know what to do for him, I am so emotional because I don't want my child to be hungry. What are other options out there? Has anyone else experienced this milk reaction? And is there a test to get done to make sure that my son is allergic to cow milk? Please please help! I've called the doctors office but still have not got a call back. Thank you all so so so much!
