In brief: Common problem

...And increasing in prevalence, and egg allergy is among the more common.
The immune system can recognize the egg protein as foreign and result in an acute, sometimes severe, allergic reactions. These can be life threatening to the allergic individual. People with food allergies should always carry an Epinephrine injector. Egg allergies often go away, unlike nut allergies which are also common.
