Brief Answer:
Probably.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome To HCM. I am Dr Anshul Varshney. I understand your concern.
Yes, If your skin test and blood test are negative for banana allergy, it's unlikely that you have it.
A person can have allergy from thousands of substances. So, probably it's something else.
However there is no definitive guide that you really don't have allergy to banana. However if we go for probable score, yes it's very unlikely if your skin and allergy test are negative.
I hope it helps you.
If you have any further query, please ask me.
