the antibiotics should not affect the eosinophil count
Allergies certainly CAN do this
In fact, it is one of the signs of an allergic disorder
Should i see an Allergist?
do you know what you are allergic to?
It seems that the allergy comes in spring until late fall. also 2 cats my wife has.
Are the EOS tests unusually high?
no, nothing to worry about, but an allergist visit might be very useful to define your allergies and to treat them specifically.
allergy immunotherapy can, over the course of 6 mos or so cure you of your allergies.
Ok. I read EOS facts and some Leukemias and Lymphomas were mentioned. Would that be a concern?
only if the other forms of white blood cells were also high, and isolated eosinophilia (elevated eosinophils) is FAR more likely to be related to an allergy problem than to leukemia or lymphoma.... I would not worry about that at all.
Ok. Thanks. I will make appointment for allergy tests.
