  • Yes to dairy and I have no idea how I did it. I just avoided it for years and years then I started introducing it back into my diet and sure enough I was okay with consuming it.

  • throughout childhood I got allergy shots and i guess I just outgrew almost everything. I still have bad allergic reactions to mold

  • Thank you. I needed some hope. My 21 months old is allergic to Milk, Eggs and Peanuts and I'm really hopeful that he will outgrow from them....sigh.

  • According to my allergist, the only food allergies anyone can outgrow are dairy, wheat, and eggs. You absolutely have to avoid all forms of the food and sometimes after 25 years they can outgrow the allergy. My cousin outgrew her allergy to eggs, dairy, and chocolate around 28 years old (confirmed with allergy testing, not a guess), but she is still severely allergic to peanuts and fish. Your child will not outgrow the peanut allergy. You will always have to be careful with that.
