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.

In brief: Likely allergies

Parasitic infections in the us are much less likely than allergies as a cause for elevated ige levels (unless you have had recent travel outside the us, especially to a 3rd world country).
The itchy skin and throat also are more likely allergic manifestations. In the absence of other symptoms, waiting a week to see an allergist should not be a risk. www.mainlineent.com.
