In brief: Nobel prize

If you could answer the question of why people develop allergies when they do, you'd have a nobel prize hanging on your wall.
It is certainly more common to develop food allergies at a younger age, but they can develop in adults, too. Make sure you get tested to confirm the allergy and carry your epi-pen.
