In brief: Discuss with your MD

The diagnosis of a food allergy is made by taking a careful history and identifying problems that could be due to food allergies, and correlating exposure history to symptoms.
Skin or blood testing for food allergies only confirms the clinical impression, but does not make the diagnosis. Many people with positive food allergy tests may be able to eat the food without problems.
