Ige level of 760, all other blood tests normal. Itchy skin and throat. Allergies or parasites? So worried and can't see allergist until next week.

Other kinds of bug bites, heat rash (miliaria) or even swimmer's itch caused by an allergic reaction to a waterborne parasite can produce red or white bumps. Use OTC cortisone cream for a day or two.
