Re: how long does food allergy last
Unfortunately, there is no one answer to how long a reaction will last or how severe the reaction will be. Even testing can't tell you that until you have an actual reaction. Each person is different. My 2 year old son has multiple food allergies which we discovered when he was 10 mos old. He had been living with chronic eczema since about 4 mos, which cleared up when we had him tested for the top food allergens and I took the ones which he was allergic to out of my diet (I was breastfeeding at the time). I fed him one food he was allergic to (egg) and had an instant rash all around his mouth that cleared up in a few minutes. For him, it seems to be a mild reaction that goes away fairly quickly. But like I said, each person is different. Food allergies can be confusing and scary, the more you research and ask others about it the more confident you will feel. New research and studies are coming out all the time. Good luck!
