Suggest treatment for fish allergy and milk allergy

As I ve gotten more mature, I say I ve developed allergies. I can t eat or smell any type fish, can t drink milk, and can no longer eat nuts. I ve asked my doctor, he states I should be able to eat the same foods, because you don t develop allergies. What would cause this to happen now?

HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Allergies can sometimes develop over time.

They would show as rash, itching, swelling, GI symptoms (vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain).
If you are having these symptoms then you may be allergic to something that you are consuming.

This can be confirmed by allergy tests which can be blood tests or skin prick testing.

I hope this helps

Hi the doctor thinks my 6 month old had a milk allergy so we have changed his formula to allerpro and that seemed to work as far as him being a lot more settled at night, regular bowel movements and his eczema has gone away. However he has started to vomit clear flem after the bottles so the doctor has now put him on lactose free formula. I m worries that changing his formula will bring back all those nasty symptoms or will it make him even better?? Help!!
