Help !!!

Have got white smoke from exhaust until engine gets warm and then stops, Fan is always on when engine starts up for the first time. Seems to be burning a lot of oil and checked oil filler cap today and milky residue around the top. Engine is always running hot.

Head gasket replaced less than a year ago, it can't be the same problem again can it ?

Was the head checked and re-machined for warping?

It could well be the same problem if you didnt re-torque the head bolts after a couple of weeks.
