Some kids may take long time to outgrow milk allergy

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- New research reveals some children may take longer than expected to outgrow a milk allergy.

A study of more than 200 children with a milk allergy confirmed that just over one third outgrew their symptoms within 30 months.

That contradicts previous studies showing a much higher percentage of kids leaving their allergy behind quickly.

Researchers say children with a milder allergy were more likely to outgrow it, and add there is hope for most kids.

More than 85 percent of children eventually outgrow a milk allergy.
