Hi Jamal Eric,

Babies who have red cheeks with spots and itching, one of the most common causes is cow's milk allergy, in addition to other possible causes such as allergies from other sources, irritant contact dermatitis (due to an irritating object/or substance), viral infections, etc.

Cow's milk allergy is a risk for formula-fed babies. This reaction arises because the immune system in the body is too sensitive to a protein content found in cow's milk. Usually, babies get allergic talents that are passed down by parents (although the allergic manifestations in parents can be different, for example allergies to other foods or allergic rhinitis). In most cases, cow's milk allergy can gradually improve as the child gets older, although some persist into adulthood.

To determine whether your child is really suffering from cow's milk allergy or other diseases, it is advisable to consult further with a pediatrician so that he can be examined directly (see the skin rash), if necessary, additional examinations such as allergy tests are carried out. If it is proven that he is allergic to cow's milk, the main treatment is to completely avoid products containing cow's milk, supported by symptomatic treatment (according to the symptoms that arise, for example giving cream/ointment for the skin). Formula milk can be replaced with breast milk, soy milk (if not allergic), or formula milk specifically labeled hypoallergenic for a certain period of time. However, the disadvantages of this type of milk are that it is more expensive and the taste and smell tends to be more pungent, so some children do not like it.

Other things that might help:

If the child is >6 months old and starts consuming solid food, avoid other foods/drinks that contain cow's milk protein. If you are still breastfeeding, the mother is also advised to avoid consuming cow's milk products. processed soybeans, broccoli and spinach (if you have MPASI). Exposure to sunlight in the morning (6-10 am) for the formation of vitamin D After eliminating cow's milk protein for at least 6 months, you can try reintroducing cow's milk products in small portions while monitoring symptoms, because it is possible that after 3 years of age allergic reactions tend to decrease. Recognize and avoid other allergy triggers. To add insight, you can read related articles: Overcoming cow's milk allergy, choosing formula milk
