Absolutely, just like you can develop an allergy to anything.  Also they can be lessened or go away also.  

My dh got allergic to his deodorant after using it for years.  Same thing with antibiotics.  You might have taken one off and on for years and become allergic later.

Yes you can. I can not take sulfa meds anymore. I could up until I was 24. Started breaking out in an itchy rash all over.

Absolutely. I was never allergic to alfalfa sprouts and then Jimmy Johns almost did me in.

Well, not overnight, but they can develop over time.

Yes.
Your body changes every 7 years.
I was 30 before my cat allergies appeared.
My DD is 14 yrs old and is now showing signs of cat allergies.

Yes. My Mom became highly allergic to nuts in her mid 40's.

Yes. Our body changes every seven years according to scientists. I had peanuts a few weeks ago, it's something I rarely eat and couldn't remember the last time I had them. Was in the ER within 15 minutes of putting the first one in my mouth with anaphylactic shock.

I'm allergic to anything with Sulfa too.

Quoting sam12796: Yes you can. I can not take sulfa meds anymore. I could up until I was 24. Started breaking out in an itchy rash all over.
