Food Allergy Prognosis
Most people with food allergies do well if they are able to avoid their trigger foods. With time, many people lose their antibodies to the foods to which they once were allergic to, or "outgrow" the allergy.
Once a person has had a reaction to a food, he or she is more likely to have a severe reaction if exposed to the trigger.
