Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Redness on the body might be caused by an allergy to formula milk. Usually the symptoms of allergies to certain foods / drinks / drugs will appear after the second and subsequent administration (not on the first delivery). Redness on the body may also be caused by other things, such as insect bites or other small animals, contact dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, bacterial, viral, fungal, or parasitic infections, and many other possibilities.
If indeed the rash appears related to formula feeding, you can try to stop the feeding and see if the rash on your child's body disappears or not. If it is caused by an allergy to the milk, the rash will disappear within 1-2 days. If the rash does not go away after stopping milk supply, or it does multiply, other causes need to be considered. If your child experiences symptoms of other severe allergies (shortness of breath, breath sounds, face, mouth, and tongue look swollen, redness occurs throughout the body) immediately take him to the hospital.
For now, prevent your child from scratching the rash on his body, clipping the child's nails so as not to hurt the body if he accidentally scratches the rash, compressing the itchy part with a cold compress, or giving lotion containing calamine to relieve itching.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
