Don't know what to do HELP!!

After almost a month and a half of struggling to cut dairy out of my diet for my ds I am still unsuccessful.I live in a little bitty town that has no organic food stores,the closest one is 30 to 35 miles away.So I have struggled with shopping in our local walmart to find food with out milk and remembering to read labels.But I need help trying to do this so I don't get talked into switching him to formula.

This is part of what milk proteins in my milk are doing to him:

These are just shots of his thighs and back.He is covered on his calves,arms,and head.

Are you absolutely sure that this is a reaction from your milk? My baby also is sensitive to milk products I eat but never any thing like this......Have you taken him to the Doctor? If  so, what has he said?

We have talked to his dr several times about this and she has been no help.I have been considering changing dr's.But dairy has been the only thing that I have been able to rule that is causing this.I use free and clear detergent to wash his clothes.It's just not his eczema that makes me think it's a dairy allergy,anytime that I have eaten it,he gets congested,spits up more than normal,very gassy,crying for hours and I can't comfort him.His dr doesn't fully believe it's dairy because he has gained a good bit of weight since his birth.He went from 6lbs 12 oz @ birth to now 5 months 19/20 lbs.

My little guy is in 75% in height and weight and he too has all the reactions you have described when I eat Dairy except this one. This rash  does not look like a dairy allergy to me but then again I am no doctor. Could you get his stools checked for maybe different allergies?

sorry mama. my nephew, 2 of my sisters and my cousin all had/have ezcema. Especialy my nephew...dairy i believe makes hs worse as well as some detergants and even tap water. they even got a water purifier for thier home and it never went completely away.....same wit my sisters when they were younger but they grew out of it later....or atleast hadvery few outbreaks. Poor baby. Maybe you can see an allergy specialist to get him tested for certain allergies? there could be more than one culprit.

Actually we did a stool sample but I'm not sure of everything they had it checked for,probably nothing for allergies.He is supposed to go back on Oct 22 and I will probably give it a few more days to see if it calms back down but if not I have decided we are going back and I am demanding more tests.

His face is starting to break out but nothing is his diaper area.
