In brief: Nasal congestion

You do not mention how long this condition has been going on, does it come and go or is it constant? Milk allergy may not cause such issues on a chronic basis, and is associated with other symptoms such as abdominal pain, diarhhea, cramping and maybe hives or eczema.
If this is chronic, she should see an ENT as her sleep apnea is concerning.

In brief: Swollen tonsils

She is likely suffering from tonsillitis (viral in nature as she also has stuffy nose).
I would recommend getting her swabbed for strep as it is easily treatable with antibiotics. Now her snoring and breathing definitely needs to be evaluated by her pediatrician - it may be due to large adenoids or tonsils and resulting in osa (obstructive sleep apnea).
