You can’t control whether you outgrow allergies
Science hasn’t yet taught us an assured way to expedite up the process of outgrowing a food allergy once the allergy is present.
Because we can’t change how or when these allergies come into existence, it’s best to prevent their development in the first place.
So, what are the ways?
One of the first things you may want to know is what causes seafood or shellfish allergy. Facts say that seafood allergy includes allergy to either fish or shellfish. The main allergenic proteins differ between these groups. When we say seafood in the shellfish category, this includes crustaceans and mollusks, such as shrimp, crab, lobster, squid, oysters, scallops, and others.
Shellfish allergy symptoms range from mild symptoms — such as hives or a stuffy nose.
The fact is that in shellfish allergy, your immune system wrongly identifies a specific protein in shellfish as bad. That triggers the production of antibodies to the shellfish protein (allergen).
The next time you come in contact with the allergen, your immune system releases histamine and other chemicals that cause allergy symptoms.
The way you may outgrow this allergy to the fullest nearly is by choosing the right shellfish that has body-friendly protein, which doesn’t trigger any reaction. We have two categories of shellfish including Crustaceans and Mollusks.
One of the ways to figure out which seafood is for you is to estimate out if the unusual type of shellfish allergy exists in your family and food habits history.

After a few months, the kids were able to eat several thousand milligrams of each allergen at a time with no major reaction. (1)
