Hello
welcome to health care magic
Regarding hyper eosinophilic syndrome,it is a myeloproliferative disorder..
In the treatment 1st line of treatment is corticosteriods like predinsolone..
Hydroxyl urea is the 2nd line of treatment..
If you have more side effects,then another drug is there interferon therapy like imitinib

Consult hematologist and try this medicine..
hope you understand my suggestion
thank you
