Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Milk allergy is a condition that is often found in children and infants. Just like other allergies, this condition is based on the body's excessive response to a substance contained in milk. Excessive response can be in the form of diarrhea, vomiting, coughing, shortness of breath, itching, red rashes, runny eyes, and if the condition is severe, can result in anaphylaxis or severe allergic reactions that can cause death.
So far it is not known what causes a person to have allergies, whatever their form. So it is also unknown how to prevent it, and totally eliminate it from the body. Drugs that have circulated so far are only to relieve symptoms, but if the triggers return (which in this case is milk), then the symptoms will return. Even so, this milk allergy for some children can subside by itself with increasing age and settled into adulthood for some others.
Regarding your question, in dealing with milk allergies, or other allergies, the best way is to avoid the trigger, namely milk. If you still want to give milk to your child, you can use soy milk or hypo-allergenic formula milk, which already has a special content and is considered safe for sufferers of milk allergy. Hypoallergenic milk is only a type of milk, not a particular brand. For the brand you are free to choose which one if your child likes.
Apart from that, with the age of up to 10 months your child is actually not completely dependent on milk anymore. Starting from the age of 6 months, milk alone is not enough to meet nutritional needs. There should be complementary foods or complementary foods, and that can be in the form of vegetables, fruit, baby porridge, to meat, with the record that everything has been made sufficiently smooth to be digested properly by your baby. So, hopefully answering your question.
