5 doctors agree

In brief: No

Waste of money prior to age 3 as the results are not reliable in a 4month old.

In brief: Why ???

There might be some valid information on foods you have introduced but baby should me on nothing but breast milk at 3 months.
The body does not trigger reactions to things it has never been exposed to.If the kid was developing eczema a blood test for allergies may be helpful. At 3 mo, if you think something you are using causes a problem, stop it,use an unrelated alternative for a few wks & see
