Can a person outgrow an allergy?
It normally works the other way around – people can grow into allergies. There are cases in which one allergy replaces another, such as with childhood food allergies. Children normally suffer from food allergies more than adults. Once they grow up, they may get rid of food allergies but then be affected by seasonal or environmental allergies. About 85% of children outgrow food allergies to milk, soy, egg and wheat, but only 20% outgrow a peanut allergy. Up to half of young children outgrow their asthma, but many find that their symptoms return later in life. For most children, eczema improves during childhood.
