High IgE levels associated with symptoms of cough indicate atopy; there may be associated eosiniphilia and also parasitic infection. It could also be caused due to asthma, but as there is only dry cough, other causes should also be excluded. Your son should be assessed by a pulmonologist for proper management. Stress is an important factor playing its part. Good luck.
