Dear Wendy
Yes, in some cases. What usually happens, however, is that people who are allergic to milk and dairy make a lot of mucous (post-nasal drip) and this makes chest congestion worse. If you suspect that you are allergic to foods, then discuss this with your dr so that you can have the necessary tests done.
