Thanks for writing your query.

AEC count indicates Absolute Eosinophils Count. Eosinophils are type of cells which increase in allergic phenomenon in the body. They are also increased in presence of worms in the body.
Normal value should be less than 350 cells/microL.

The symptoms you have mentioned are due to allergic reaction and needs urgent medical attention. Antihistaminic medicines are needed immediately and if clinical examination suggests, steroids in injectable form can be needed.

I would suggest you that you should go to the Emergency Department and get yourself clinically examined.

I hope this is helpful to you.
