Hi XXXXXXX,
Welcome to XXXXXXX forum.

History of allergy along with presence of eosinophilia indicates protection from an allergen which is dust in your case.
You should use mask for getting protection along with try to keep away from dust.
There is high possibilities of allergy with secondary viral and bacterial infection.
You should consult with XXXXXXX medicine specialist and allergy specialist and should go for thorough check up.
You should also consult with ENT surgeon for thorough check up of nasal mucosa.
You should go for allergy test also.
There may also be possibilities of simultaneous allergy from another allergen apart from dust.
You should go for complete blood count along with absolute eosinophil count.
You should take deworming medicine along with complete antibiotic course, mucolytics, anti allergic (cetrizine with zileuton).
You should also go for steam inhalation for better relief.
If necessary, corticosteroids may be used for suppression of allergy.
You should take medicine on written prescription from your treating doctor.
Hope that helps.
Let me know if I can address any more concerns.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava

Hi, My suster s father in law is having rare skin problem of white and itching skin on the entire body and also skin comes out when we touch. after showing one of the md around we were told his allergy has increased to 4000 where as normal is 100. whenever we start with anibiotics the effect remains for a day or two this is happening for more than 4-5 months now. Please suggest any test which would highlight the actual problem thanks.

Hi

Can you tell me what the following symptoms might be from?



heart rate 135

shortness of breath

High Neutrophils



My sister aged 23, has always had breathing problems off and on since her teenage years and we think she is allergice to pine nuts however she has never been diagnosed as having allergies. Recently she had been kept overnight for her rapid heart rate and tested for thyroid (ok), ekg (ok) among other things which I assume were the standard tests. In the end they recomended she see a cardiologist. She will today.



Can you tell me what those symptoms might be typical of?

Helo sir,
I am 29 year old I had typhoid when I was about 15 years and doctor prescribed me some tablets .I had severe fever just one day night and on the same day I was having severe itching on the glans penis and by the next day it became sores.The next day itself I again consulted the doctor and he changed the medicines.He said that might be because of allergy to sulphar or something.That sores became worst and took around two weeks to heal leaving many marks and uneven skin.What type of allergy was it?or was it a symptom of something else like any STD?Is there any way to remove that marks on the glans penis?Please help.becouse of shyness I never discussed these with a doctor

I am 20 years old, & yes, I understand the under age drinking policy, which isn't something that I need to hear when answering about this subject. Occasionally(doesn't happen -every- single time), when I drink alcohol I get chest paints so severe that it hurts to breath, & I feel this tightening in my chest, AND in my neck muscles, where it hurts to turn my head. This can happen after one drink, a few sips. After about 20 to 30 minutes,the pain seems to diminish and I can't even tell that it happened at all. Could there be an allergy to certain brands of alcohol, or the color of alcohol? I think it tends to happen more with dark colored alcohol brands. Could it be some sort of heart burn or acid reflux?

Can you kill or is there an antidote for this GMO drug Pegfilgrastiim. You already took my credit card. Where are you? The drug is neulastin. I am allergic to this. It must be stopped. What can I do. What do I tell emergency?
