I don't have any experience with a soy allergy, but I'm sure others have talked about it here before. If your library has it, get the book "Is this your child" by Dr. Doris Rapp. It lists many different possible allergens and effects. It's a great book.
Soy allergies are supposed to be very common too, although not quite as common as dairy. You may as well do an elimination diet to test out the soy allergy. Think how easy it would be and could possibly solve your problems. Try the fortified rice milks instead.
Doctors are jerks when they immediately dismiss allergies, especially when the allergy can be so easy to test for. Our first doctor also told us that dairy products had no effect on mucous production and congestion. You are the mother. If you suspect a possibly soy allergy, do the easy test by cutting it out of his diet for 2-4 weeks and see what happens.
