How the reduce the high ASO count?

I am a 44 years male. I just got my ASO results which are way high-6400. CRP came back negative. The rest of my results for cardiac, lungs, kidney, stomach, liver etc came back normal. I keep getting skin rashes which come and go. What can I do to resolve the high ASO.
