If kids can grow out of food allergies, is it possible to grow into a food allergy? Within the last two years I have started getting sick with dairy.

Yes: Just as allergies can occur at any age, they can resolve at any age. If you are having problems with dairy, you want want to try lactaid - if you have lactose intolerance, it should help. Food allergies can present as any symptoms, but usually, it presents as nausea, upset stomach, loose stools, or blood in stools.
