Hello doctor,

My daughter is 8 years old and she is having dry cough since last two months and sometimes she complains of stomach ache in a month. I got the blood test done yesterday and in the report, she had eosinophils high, that is, 8.7 % and the absolute eosinophils count is 59000/microliter of blood. Other findings are neutrophils 36.5 %, lymphocytes absolute count is 343000/microliter of blood. Monocytes absolute counts is 28000, and more. Kindly let us know what is the disease likely to be and treatment for that disease and precaution of the same.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

Your daughter has hyperreactive airways and she is allergic. And reports show that she has a tendency towards asthma. I suggest you put her on Fluticasone puff and Levolin (Levosalbutamol) as a reliever. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take the medicines with their consent.

I suggest please go visit a general pediatrician or a pulmonologist - they will explain to you the inhaler therapy and months to continue it. She will be fine once she takes the therapy. But there is nothing much to panic.

Just wanted to ask if there is any other history in the family and has your daughter had seasonal attacks of cold and cough in the past. All these suggest her tendency for asthma.
