The Allergic March

Common pattern:

Atopic dermatitis (eczema) as a baby
Food allergies (milk, egg, soy) in infancy to early childhood, majority outgrown,
Asthma in childhood
Rhinitis (environmental allergies) in teens,
Possible new food allergies (tree nut, seafood) emerging in adulthood, usually not outgrown

There is a lot of individual variation.
Not all people with allergic tendencies will develop all of these components, but they do have a higher probability.
Unfortunately some childhood food allergies (nuts) are less likely to outgrow.
