In brief: Not very reliable

Positive allergy testing for a food item is considered to be a false positive test unless you have a reaction to the food when you eat it.

In brief: Possibly

Skin testing and blood testing for milk protein allergy is very accurate, but such tests should be interpreted based on your history.
