In brief: It happens often

Many children outgrow their allergies as they get older. This is extremely variable with some keeping their allergies for a lifetime and some outgrowing them within a couple years or more.
Children who develop allergies at an early age often are rid of them by early grade school. Allergy shots (immunotherapy) can cure or at least help most children with severe allergies and asthma.
