High eosinophilia

My daughther Taahira used to get allergies in her palm and foot every now and then. When contacted her pediatric (he suggested for blood test) and initally it was noticed that eosinophill count is high around 750+. He gave tonics and asked to avoid certain food. We followed it max to an extend. But two days we noticed fungal infections in her head and the esonophil count now was 1500+. Can you please suggest, is it a serious cause and there is no permanent solution ?

Hi. Greetings. You need to be evaluated in detail by a qualified dermatologist with whom you can discuss all issues with time. Your child may be having these infections as a CO incidence, don't worry. Get the fungal infection treated. Also take anti worms medication, since worms may also be a cause. If nothing works, your child may probably need evaluation for immuno def syndromes... Hope this helps. Dr Govind Suresh Mittal.
