Hard to say: More important that the percentage of eosinophils is the actual number of them in the blood. If your total white blood cell count is low, that % may be normal. If the total WBC is high, that % may equal a high absolute number of eos. In general, a slightly elevated % or absolute eosinophil count is most likely to be due to allergic disease. See your doctor or an allergist for more info.

What is the cure for a 5yr old if eosinophils count is high?

Dr. James Ferguson

Variable diagnosis: This could be a due to a number of things.Proper treatment would require an identification of the cause through exam and testing before a treatment plan could be formulated. The eosinophils are up some in allergies, up a lot in some parasite infections, and very high in some blood disorders. The plan should originate from the doc who knows the kid the best, or his/her referral source.
