Risk of egg allergy increases with age
Egg allergies are more common in adults than in children. This is because the proteins in eggs can change as we age, making them more likely to trigger an allergic reaction. Egg allergies can cause a range of symptoms, from mild (such as hives or itching) to severe (such as difficulty breathing or swelling). If you have an egg allergy, it is important to carry an EpiPen with you at all times in case of a severe reaction.
