Brief Answer:
You have polycythemia.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern.

Your Hemoglobin and Hematocrit values are high. It suggest polycythemia.
However single time high value is not significant. It can be due to dehydration or other secondary causes.

You should repeat your hemoglobin and hematocrit two to three times at monthly interval. If it remains persistently high then you need further investigation like serum Epo level to search the cause of polycythemia.
Right now no treatment is required for that.

Continue your treatment for skin allergy according to advice. You can take calcicard with that for your high blood pressure along with that.

Hope I have answered your question. If you have any doubts then feel free to ask me. I will be happy to answer.
Thanks for using health care magic. Wish you a very good health.
