I am just taking an informal survey. If you or your child has outgrown a milk allergy, at what age?

Jason was about 2 when he outgrew his milk allergy.

I was 16 when I officially grew out of my milk allergy; however, I had been "experimenting" with dairy products for about 3 years prior to my food challenge. I had a mild/ moderate allergy that caused wheezing. My brother was anaphaylactic and outgrew his allergy at 7.

My son had outgrown his milk allergy by the time he was about three.

Oh wow Allison, there is hope. My DS had an anaphylatic reaction to milk when he was 2. Had an accidental exposure when he was 5 and vomitted. Not sure how reaction would have progressed at this time. Emergency room doc gave adrenalin anyway to be sure. I would love for him to outgrow this allergy!

I remain hopeful that my child will outgrow milk allergy, and that is why I posed this question. Egg allergy was outgrown in July and I think we may be having a retest for milk in January. Rast scores for milk have been running between 3 and 4 ku/L over the past couple of years. What are your rast scores folks?

My PA/MA daughter just had an SPT a few weeks ago, and her reaction was humongous (I don't know what the exact measurement was, but it was about as big as they can get). She was diagnosed at 2 and is 15 now, so we're pretty much looking at living with the allergy for the rest of her life (as well as the PA).
I have a bunch of information about milk allergies on my other forum at [url=","],[/url] plus another thread about alternatives for milk products at [url=""][/url]
Feel free to contact me if you'd like more information.

We don't do SPT's because we consider it another exposure.
Are you interseted in learning about different classes of allergy?

Thank you for the feedback. I'm just wondering about milk allergy when it develops in an older child. I was thinking it might just disappear at her next test like it appeared, without any signs at all. My dd tested at a two to the spt to milk at her last allergy test but has never reacted to it before. My ds was milk allergic as a newborn and reacted horribly to milk in the smallest consumption before he outgrew.

My daughter is a 1, but I am thinking it was RAST. It could have been a 2 I can't remember. She never had a bad reaction, but we dealt with eczema since she was a baby. She has been off of milk and milk products for the last year. The eczema has been a little better, but it will sill get bad without her food allergies.
Our yearly appt with the allergist is coming up and he said we may trial milk in the spring when eczema tends to be better.
I hope we get another allergy test to see if the numbers have changed.
