Hi, One year back, because of viral fever doctor prescribed me these tablets: Doxcef 200 mg, Signoflam, becozym forte, Pantocid-L . Following this (may not be linked to these medicines), around after a month I had developed allergic itching having skin rashes. I consulted a doctor and done IgE blood test for Allergic condition. Blood Test report shows Eosinophil: 15%, Creatinine: 0.8 mg/dl and Serum IgE: 320.58 KUI/L which are beyond normal range as per the report. Other parameters are within the ranges. Currently I\m having tablet: HHLEVO-m per day due to which the allergic skin rashes goes away temporarily but appears again after a day. Could you please provide me your comment on the above blood test result and also suggest for further specialists consultation requirement in order to get rid of my allergic condition? Thanks For your time.
