Re: Milk (dairy) & Egg allergy

Aptamil is a very popular brand here so I am quite sure you will be able to get the product you need. If you are currently in Switzerland then just find and 'apotheke' in German, not sure what it is called in French, which is the pharmacy, and ask. It might help if you just take a package from your curren product and they can look it up on their system.

I would expect that it would be subsidized, similar to Australia, but I am sure the pharmacist would know if the cost can be covered by the Swiss health insurance on prescription.

Also, doctors here are allowed to dispense medication, so it might be that they would simply provide you with the product and bill it to the health insurance...
