It is not unusual to have an allergy, with over 1 in four people in the UK suspected to be affected, but they are most common in children. Allergies are the response some people's bodies have to particular foods or substances, most allergic reactions are mild, and can be managed at home, however more severe allergies can be more problematic and interfere with your everyday life.
Allergies can go away with age, however for many people they are present for life, and you can become allergic to new things with time.
