    Milk Protein Allergy
    An_246873 posted:
    My son has a milk protein allergy that we found out about when he was about 2 months old. Every type of formula that we had tried him on he was throwing up or getting these really bad blotchy red patches all over his body. We were then put on Nutramigen from Enfamil and it has then subsided. My question is that we use WIC and since he is almost a year old ( he will be year in September) they want us to try him on milk. I have asked his doctor for an allergy test but she absolutely refuses to give him one. So my question really is should I hope that he has grown out of it and try him on solid milk when he is 1 or should I try again and get him to have an allergy test done.
