What type of disease is 'snowfelia'? do 'eosinophilia & snowfelia' mean the same thing?

Never heard of: Unless you meant eosinophilia and not snowfelia. Eosinophils are the major cells in the white blood cell group which cause allergic inflammation in the target. When the count is elevated (usually in blood ), it is called eosinophilia. Since it is the number of eosinophils present in the target which causes the disease, the count in the blood may or may not be increased in allergies.
