Allergy to Formula

Allergy to Formula

Our child is allergic to either formula or her medications. She seems to be allergic to every formula we have tried. Is this possible?

SAC approved answer

There are only three primary types of formula:* 
Neocate and Neocate 1+
* Elecare (Ross)
* Pediatric Vivonex

I do not believe it is possible to be allergic to all of these. You can be "intolerant" of one or the other, but not on an immunologic basis.
