If you're allergic to a drug have a drug allergy Can you outgrow it as you get older For instance I'm allergic to phenobarbital?

Maybe

Allergies
There are some allergies that resolve as you grow older. For instance some people can get improvement in their response to certain medications as they get older, or further away from the initial exposure. This may be due to a calming of the inflammatory response as you age. However, if you were my patient I would not give you a medication that you were allergic to as the risk is too high

I have an allergy to nuts and i was wondering if my children would also be allergic?

Nut allergy

Rollerblading
Maybe. Your children may have inherited genes from you that make them more likely to develop an allergy, but they do not inherit a specific allergy to a food e.g. nuts. The children have to be exposed to food proteins in the diet, before an allergy can develop. Once one develops an allergy then they are always allergic and need proper medical attention to prevent severe problems.

I have a squid ink allergy. Was curious as to what the ink contains that I could be allergic to?

Mollusk

Allergies
Squid is considered a mollusk (oyster, clam, abalone etc) although a free-ranging one. Its ink contains proteins which can sensitize people just like clams or oysters do.

Can you actually be allergic to allergy shots?

Not really

Skincare
One wouldn't be allergic to allergy shots but because allergy shots contain the allergens one is allergic to one can have significant systemic reactions to allergy vaccine therapy.

Bactrim allergy would I be allergic to cipro?

Not necessarily

Ciprofloxacin_hydrochloride
They are not in the same class of antibiotics, so being allergic to bactrim does not imply you would also be allergic to cipro.
