Allergy Treatment for Kids

I've heard about a woman outside of Boston who cures kids' allergies by starting with an infinitesimal amount of the allergen, and slowly exposing the body to greater amounts, until the allergy is overcome. A similar process was used in a study at Duke recently. Is there anyone else in the USA using this process (successfully) to treat/cure kids' allergies, that you know of?

Can an allergy start at 40?

Can food allergies develop at forty years old? In my case, I'm getting hives (on my arm or hand) when i eat anything with dairy in it -- this has never happened before.
