Food Challenge Allergy Test

Posted: 09/25/2017

Children can outgrow allergies. An allergy test, called the Food Challenge, introduces the allergen to a child and if there is no reaction, the child is given more of the food. If there is no reaction after consuming a large portion of the food, then the child is no longer considered allergic to the food. Check out NPR here to read the full article about children's allergies and the Food Challenge.
