Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your concerns today.
I am sorry to hear about your problem.
Lactose intolerance certainly is a problem that needs to be strongly considered and lactose free milk is available which should be tried.
Have you tried giving him lactose-free milk to see if that helps?
Kind regards
