Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. GERD, or simply stomach acid disease, is a condition when stomach acid 'rises' into the esophagus, and can also into the oral cavity, causing symptoms of pain in the pit of the stomach, nausea and vomiting, heat in the chest area, tightness and in some babies may be able also affects the sound of his breathing, especially if it is already happening often and is quite severe. In infants and children, this GERD condition usually occurs because the muscle rings that block the flow of stomach acid upwards are weak, so that if their stomachs are full, or they immediately lie down after their stomachs are filled, their stomach acid can rise easily.
Then for milk allergy, this condition is usually characterized by babies who appear red rashes, itching, diarrhea, coughing, wheezing, swelling of the lips, tongue or tonsils, shortness of breath or vomiting followed by consumption of milk. So every time you consume milk, the symptoms will come out, and if you are not given milk, the symptoms will not come out. This condition is unknown cause, and can be treated by giving soy milk or hypoallergenic formula milk. This condition in some children can disappear with age, and settled into adulthood in others.
As for your question, we cannot correct the diagnosis that has been made for your child by the doctor beforehand because we did not conduct a direct examination of it. We don't even interview you directly to confirm the history of the disease and its symptoms. So that the diagnosis could be right and could be wrong, as well as the handling.
What we can recommend to you is the flow of the examination. With the condition experienced by your child, have it checked by a pediatrician, and if it has been checked but the condition does not improve, control and check again at the same pediatrician. This is important because indeed not all diseases can be seen clearly at the first meeting. What is clear, if at the next meeting the condition is still not getting better, your pediatrician will pay more attention and check deeper to find out what treatment is best for your child.
If you have already consulted the pediatrician several times the complaint still does not improve, or you feel the doctor did not provide a satisfactory information, you have the right to seek a second opinion on another pediatrician. The point is that everything must go through an examination first, the information we provide about the diagnosis of the disease is always the context is only conjecture, and to be sure to still have to go through a direct examination process by a doctor.
Meanwhile, if your child is allergic to milk, as we said earlier, he should have no problem consuming soy milk or hypoallergenic formula milk. And with his age now milk must actually be juxtaposed with other food sources, such as meat, vegetables, fruit, eggs, baby porridge, and so forth. Avoid it from cigarette smoke, and check it out immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
