Xolair May Treat Milk Allergy in Kids

Study Shows Xolair May Be Effective for Children Who Are Severely Allergic to Milk

Outgrowing Allergies Without Medication

In another study presented at the meeting -- the first to follow kids allergic to milk and watch what happens as they grow -- researchers tracked 244 milk-allergic children who ranged in age from 3 months to 15 months.

After 2 1/2 years, 89 had outgrown their allergy, indicating that kids who are allergic to milk as babies and toddlers have about a 40% chance of getting over their sensitivities without any special treatment by the time they’re in grade school.

Researchers noted that children who had very severe eczema, a flaky, itchy skin condition, or a very high score on their allergy tests were less likely than others to outgrow their allergies.
