Our Ask Tony and Tucker question comes from Nikoll Trimmer in Suitland, Maryland. She is allergic to shellfish, and her daughter is allergic to peanuts. Nikoll writes, "Why are so many people allergic to shellfish and peanuts, and are these the sort of allergies that one can sort of outgrow? I want to eat shrimp so bad! If there is a chance I would ever be able to, I would love to know."
Dr. Elena Reece, an allergist with Howard University Hospital, joined us with allergy information.
