Allergic to alopathic tablets, eosinophils count raised, prescribed Banocid forte. Right treatment to cure allergy?

I am male, age 28 years, leave in Pune, Maharashtra. I am allergic to many allopathic tablets. I ve developed this allergy suddenly 2 tears back (in 2010). Right now my eosinophills count is 1207 whereas normal range is 0 to 500. For this reason, my family physician has advised me a dosage of 21 Banocide Forte 100mg, 1 per night after dinner. I have a few questions 1. Is it proper treatment? 2. Will it only decrease allergy for a moment? 3. Can allergy be completely removed from the body? 4. If allergy can be developed suddenly, can it go away like that? Please advise me. This allergy is really very intense & I really fear to get sick.

Your eosinophil count is quite raised and definitely need to know why!
1. Allergies and allergic asthma - has this been proven in your case?
A total IgE is helpful in this setting to know if you are atopic and that the eosinophilia actually is allergic.
2. Discussion with a Haematologist
to ensure you dont require a bone marrow
3. Parasite infections
Filariae, worms (helminths) etc with stool c/s x 3; filarial antigen test etc
4. If urticaria (skin itchy with hives) as well , mast cell tryptase levels are required
Only then it will be possible to arrive at some sort of a diagnosis and management plan.
