There are some with normal IGE levels that break out or have other symptoms but the high IGE group is more likely to have it for a lifetime. Some foods like egg, nuts,fish tend to be lifelong problems while other foods seem to be tolerated more over time. Please verify the issue with your doc. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
