I have now worked out that its dairy that affects his skin and makes it hugely angry and horrid which makes him very upset and uncomfortable.

Does anyone else know about this and what should I try next? Lactose Free?

Also - just incase yes to LF - where do I buy it from? I have tried Tescos and Asda - anywhere else?

Please help?

see your GP , for a diagnosis of lactose intolerance , suitable formula should be available on prescription, don;t go lactose free without medical advice.

you can buy it in Boots. What you get depends on whether he is lactose intolerant or cows milk protein intolerant though. If it is the latter then LF wont help as it will still have cows milk protein in it. I would see your gp as there are other milks available depending on what intolerance your lo has.

Have you tried formula goat's milk? www.vitacare.co.uk

My osteopath uses it for her daughter and it helped enormously. You can get it in Waitrose but she buys online in bulk which makes it cheaper apparently.

Poor chap - hope you can find the solution.
