Just wanted to mention too, that oftentimes babies have an intolerance to foods but not a true allergy. My babies have had intolerances to many foods and thankfully outgrew them in their second year! So, even if it is a food such as dairy (wheat, soy, corn are other common ones), it doesn't necessarily mean it is an allergy that will stick around, thank goodness!
That is how it was with my son. First they thought he had reflux, but he always had horrible eczema and a diaper rash. Once they did the testing, and got treatment for his allergies, all his diaper rash and most of the eczema went away!
