Hens’ egg allergy is relatively common in children under five. The child may also have eczema as well as other food allergies besides egg allergy. Some children suffer chronic eczema without realising that egg is causing or exacerbating the problem.
About 50 per cent of children outgrow their egg allergy, but in the rest, it is likely to persist. Where it is outgrown, this is likely to happen in the first 5–7 years of life.
