If the baby is having milk allergy she will develop even skin rashes also. It is very rare to see only cough cold and fever. Also if she is allergic to milk she could be allergic to other milk products like curd ghee cheese butter etc. You should avoid all these things. If there's any family history of asthma, allergies then the baby is also more prone for these things(atopy). Kindly consult a paediatrician and dermatologist for further evaluation of the allergies. Also note that food allergies usually wean off after few years
