My son had the same symptoms every time I gave him formula! He is actually allergic to milk, and not intolerant, I think intolerance would only cause tummy problems, if it affects the skin it is probably an allergy. We had this confirmed by having blood tests done, and the results came back that he has a low allergy to milk (level 1). I give him a hypoallergenic milk formula (NAN H.A 2) which I order from the pharmacy, and he is doing really well now. I also breast feed him, and he is now 8 months, and when he finishes a feed he bites me and smiles!!!! Cheeky I know!
I think you should go back to your GP and insist he refers your baby for blood tests. We were told that he should not be having any cow's milk until he is 12 months old, and then we will try again. if you need anything, e-mail me at email@example.com.
