If the kid is growing well. I would leave it alone. ...Read more

Multiple food allergies. Last tested 2 years ago. Could I lose some food and allergies & gain new ones? 36f. Test again?
See an Allergist/Imm: First, food allergy testing can be falsely positive, so without knowing more of your history, it's hard to know if some of the tests were positive without a true allergy to that food. It can certainly happen that one may "outgrow" an allergy to one food and develop an allergy to a new food, but it is not frequent. If you haven't already done so, you should see an allergist/immunologist. ...Read more
