Tried a dab of milk

My 12 mth old ds has not had milk since he came up with hives all over his face at 6 mths after eating baby porridge.

I tried a dab on his cheek at 8 mths and it flaired up badly.

I've just tried another dab on his cheek and although it came up a bit red, it wasn't nearly as angry as when I tried at 8 mths.

Should I try him with a bit to eat? I'm scared but sadly optimistic.

The longer he goes without the better the chance that the allergy will go away. I wouldn't try while he's had a reaction.

I left dd3 until she was nearly 2 and she had completely outgrown the allergy by then.

Thanks! I wasn't sure if it was better to try and reintroduce or still avoid! You've answered my question!
