Is he on any hydrolysed formula at the moment?

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
What do you mean by hydrolysed ?
Expert:  Khizra Naz replied 14 days ago.

There are babies who have cow protein milk allergy and suffer with these kind of problems.

In those cases hydrolysed formula with decreased protein is used and manage all the conditions.

is possible him have cow protein milk allergy? How can I found if him have this problem with the allergy, what test I need make to him ?
Expert:  Khizra Naz replied 14 days ago.

It's assessed clinically and usually there are no tests needed.

Ok, because I was with him to the hospital and go but they told me everything is fine but is not because him still have this problem and I feel him is not well. So I can change the formula with an hypoallergenic formula (hydrolysed) ?
