Q. how do you treat being allergic to sort ofood but still have the option to enjoy the food you are allergic to?

A. Severe allergic reaction (e.g. life threatening like anaphylaxis) usually require strict avoidance of the food that causes allergy. In other cases of allergy, there are treatments called immunotherapy in which the body is exposed to increasing amounts of the allergen that eventually makes the body tolerant to it. I heard it's done for bee allergy, but maybe it's done for food allergy - anyway, if you have any question regarding this subject, you may consult your doctor (this treatment is done by a specific doctor).
