Question: I am having this feeling of like ants walking all over my body for the last week. It only last like a second or two on one part and then another part right away. I am not sure if it is an Itch as I don't need to itch it. It comes and disappears within a few seconds. It happens all over by body randomly most of the day. Sometimes in the legs, hands, back, face, eye lids, and head. In the morning it is not bad, but in the evening it is a lot. It came a few weeks ago and then left and came back about 5 days ago. It does not affect my sleep. When I am walking I don't notice it.

I had a full blood test a month ago. Only 2 thing came up were my ALT was 71 and my red blood count was 6.8. I had a cat scan on my stomach and they say fatty liver. My doctor says these numbers are a little high nothing to worry about and to lose weight. I am 40lb over weight. 6'ft and 245.

I am not sure if this is an allergy or the fatty liver or the blood count. What do you think this is and what do you can help?

Brief Answer:
Needs supplements and some more blood workup

Detailed Answer:
Hi! Welcome to health care magic! Thanks for sharing your concerns with us. We will try to help you in best way possible. First of all, it is sad to know what you had gone through.

Based on the history you have shared, it's good that other liver functions apart from ALT are normal and seems less likely ti be the cause as bilirubin rise nay cause itching but ALT doesn't. It would have been better if you had shared the eosinophil count to rule out some allergic conditions and hematocrit which will be mentioned in your blood counts as red cell count is a bit high and it can make blood dense inside the vessels and may also cause such symptoms of hyperviscosity. Some blood screens like urea and uric acid levels should also be done.

Meanwhile get yourself reviewed by a dermatologist to look for signs of scabies over the body or other pruritic rashes and hence to be treated accordingly. Keep replacing supplements of vitamin A, C and E alongwith zinc and calcium for better skin replenishment. For itching anti histamines like cetrizine or loratidine alongwith calamine lotion and can be used.

Wishing you a speedy recovery. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask. Regards.

Brief Answer:
The renal profile and other tests are good but blood count needs work up

Detailed Answer:
Hi! Thanks for sharing the details. It's good that most of tests ate good. For raised ALT viral serologies and fasting lipid profile can be done. But blood counts needs some probing specially with tests like Hemoglobin electrophoresis as blood counts have some discripancies. Drink more amounts of water and get a dermatologist review for other causes of itching as well. Regards.

My husband is having higher eosinophil count (15) but he is not having any any symptoms like asthma or parasitic infection or any skin infection related to any alergy. Recently he went through regular test and it has been found. Stool test was also done but no parasite fount. No sadow detected in chest and he has never had fever and ffatigueness. I want to know the reason behind this abnormal growth of Eosinophil in WBC. Is it because of genetic reason as his father is having asthma? Can it cause towards any kind of Cancer? How to bring the count down? What other test can be done to know if it is going toward fatal cancer?
