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.
