Egg allergy is one of the most common food allergies in childhood, affecting about 8 percent of infants aged 12 months¹. 80 percent of these infants are likely to outgrow their egg allergy within the first few years of life. Most children, even those who have had severe reactions, do eventually outgrow their egg allergy although some may not outgrow it until their teen years.
