Red On The Baby’s Face After Consuming Lactose-free Milk?
Doctor, my son was hospitalized yesterday with diarrhea, vomiting, lactose intolerance, after being treated at the hospital the doctor suggested buying lactose-free milk, I decided to buy nestle lactose free, after 4 days of drinking my child appeared red on my left cheek , then I replace the usual bebelove milk (containing lactose), after 2 days, the red cheek on my child is reduced, is it safe for my child who is intolerant latosa to drink milk containing lactose?
Hello Fahri, thank you for asking.
Lactose intolerance occurs because a person does not have or lack lactase enzymes that function to digest lactose. This incident is genetic. That is, in people with lactose intolerance there are abnormalities / differences in a particular gene. Lactose given to people with lactose intolerance will cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, bloating, and difficulty gaining weight in infants.
In some babies, lactose intolerance can heal with age. However, in others, lactose intolerance will persist into adulthood. The degree also varies. There are people with mild lactose intolerance, so they can still consume dairy products, but in limited quantities. There are also people with severe lactose intolerance, so they cannot consume any milk products at all.
Consult this problem with your child's doctor. Explain the reason you gave the milk to the doctor. The doctor will determine whether your child's condition can be given milk. In the meantime, consider your child's stool. If there is blood in the stool, then you should first stop the consumption of milk.
Such an explanation that I can give, hopefully you are helped. Regards.
