Tree nut allergy

Patient: Is it common for a 7 yr old child to suddenly develop an allergy to tree nuts when he has been eating them for years ?

 

 

Doctor: Yes this is very common that children can develop allergies to tree nuts such as cashews, almonds, pecans and walnuts l ater on in life. I would suggest seeing your family doctor or pediatrician to get an allergy test done.
