Does your baby have any other symptoms apart from these sores? Cow's milk allergy occurs when the immune system overreacts to the proteins in milk. Some of the symptoms of a baby experiencing cow's milk allergy are:
sneezing nose watery eyes watery lips or eyes become swollen appearing skin rash / eczema face becoming swollen diarrhea or constipation weight gain difficult to rise Sores that appear on both legs are not necessarily caused by cow's milk allergy. Insect bites or bacterial infections of the skin can also cause skin sores and dryness covered with scabs.
We recommend that you consult with a doctor to determine the cause of this wound on your child's leg. After knowing your child's condition, the doctor will examine your child. If your child also has other allergy symptoms, then your child is allergic to cow's milk. Usually doctors will suggest replacing milk with hypoallergenic milk brands or replacing milk from soybeans. The doctor will also tell you how to treat these scabs. Usually the doctor will remove this dry wound area so that the base of the wound can be treated using topical antibiotics. If there are still open wounds, please make sure the wound is dry and clean. Avoid contact with water.
Hope this information is helpful.
