My daughter's allergy test showed a moderate milk allergy, a few years ago. We recently received updated results that no longer show a milk allergy. Is it safe for her to now have milk?

It would be helpful to know your daughter’s past clinical history (e.g. specific symptoms of milk allergy) and results of any other allergy tests.

Food allergies are not diagnosed based on skin or blood tests alone. These tests and a medical history can help rule out specific food allergies. They can also help diagnose them.

Talk with your daughter's allergist about whether your daughter can milk again. An oral food challenge, under medical supervision, is the best way to determine this. It would confirm if she has outgrown her milk allergy or if she is still allergic to it.
