Male: Can you be allergic for five years or something and then today not be allergic? Dr. Marcus: It is very common for patients to outgrow allergies especially food allergies. The pattern of allergies changes over the years and so children may be allergic to certain substances when they are in their first year or two of life and later be able to tolerate eating those items. One can become allergic to dust or molds or pollens a little later in life and then have those allergies leave for some unexplained reason. So the pattern of allergies can change overtime and we should be always be alerted to this fact because we may be able to tolerate exposure at one age, where at later ages we can’t.
