Yes, some children do outgrow. Some do not. It depends upon the child, the severity of the allergy etc.

Many more children with less severe symptoms seem to outgrow as opposed to those who consistently show severe symptoms.

It's important to keep in mind that allergies can go away and then come back or that those without allergies can develop them later in life.

It's really luck of the draw at this point. There is no cure or known agreed upon cause.
