Children most apt to outgrow egg allergy

Avoiding sweets such as pumpkin bread and cookies this holiday season might not be necessary for children with egg allergies, U.S. researchers say.

"More than half of egg allergic children can tolerate hen's eggs when they are baked at 350 degrees in products such as cakes and breads," Dr. Rushani Saltzman, an allergist at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and the lead study author, said in a statement. "Dietary introduction of baked egg by an allergist can broaden a child's diet, improve quality of life and likely accelerate the development of an egg tolerance."
