My 9-month old son has been on Gentlease formula since about 2 months of age. A couple of months ago, his skin became covered with tiny little bumps (not a rash, but flesh-colored). THey don't seem to bother him, but nevertheless it indicates to me that he might be allergic to the milk in his formula.
At the same time that these bumps appeared (late March) he also began wearing a helmet to correct his skull shape. He still wears the helmet.
My question is if it is likely that the skin bumps are a late-developing allergy to milk, or perhaps the helmet. (I should also note that he has some serious health issues, and has Down Syndrome. I know that individuals with DS tend to have sensitive skin, and also tend to have allergies.)
He is entirely g-tube fed with a feeding pump, so he may have to take formula for a while yet. Thanks.
