Thank you for posting a question.

Firstly, eosinophil can be increased mainly in allergic conditions, in parasitic infection and also it may be an idiopathic.

So, in your case, history is very important. If you have a history of bronchial asthma or allergy against common antigens like dust, cold, etc then this situation is quite common and you do not need to worry.

If you have no such history, then you have to be clinically examined for any skin rashes, any type of allergic reaction. Anti-helminthic drugs can also be considered in a suspected case of worm infestations.

If everything is alright, then you should retest your blood after 15 days.

So, consult with your treating doctor for a thorough clinical examination for the search of any allergic reaction and for further management accordingly.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know, if you have any more question.
