Dry cough, nose bleeds, cold, history of bronchitis. Have esinophilia?

Hi, I am having problems of severe dry cough , cold , nose blockage and acute fever(99-100) at times for the past 6 months. All my blood reports and chest X-rays are quite positive. I had a history of bronchitis around 10 years back and i had the full course of medicines over a period of time. Consequently, after visiting several doctors, they say it is just allergy that i am suffering from. I suspect that i may have eisnophilia. Could you please advice on how to confirm this and the process of treatment, if any? I travel frequently all over the world, hence a quick reply would be very helpful.

Thanks for posting your query.
You are most likely suffering from acute bacterial sinusitis or allergic bronchitis with secondary bacterial infection.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist and pathologist simultaneously and should go for thorough check up.
You should go for complete blood count, absolute eosinophil count and IgE level for detection of allergic reaction.
You should also go for x ray PNS and chest for better diagnosis.
You should take complete antibiotic course, mucolytics and anti-allergic medicine for complete recovery.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
