I've recently developed an allergy to shellfish. How is this possible?

The body is already sensitive to certain substances at birth, but the immune system suppresses the allergy until it reaches its tolerance limit when we get older (and our immunity has worn down). This is when the allergy manifests in symptoms. Essentially, researchers believe your allergies could have been present all along.
