Child Allergic to Milk? They May Grow Out Of It

BananaStock/Thinkstock(DURHAM, N.C.) -- New studies suggest that many infants outgrow milk allergies over time.

Milk allergy is the most common of childhood allergies, and new research shown at the 2011 American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI) meeting suggests that about one in three children with the allergy grow out of it within 30 months.

The study, which was conducted by Duke, Johns Hopkins, Mount Sinai, National Jewish, and the University of Arkansas, involved some 500 patients between three and 15 months old. Researchers found that there is a 39.6 percent likelihood that they would outgrow it.
