Question: eosinophilia? I have eosinophilia in my esophagus. Eosinophils are white blood cells that react to an allergy. Basically I have too many of those cells and they mirgrate to my esophagus causing me pain. I was just wondering if anybody knew of any medicines I can try. I have been on tagament, zyrtec, singular, and protonix. Any other suggestions? Thanks

Answer: So you have eosinophilic gastroenteritis? It can be related to foods you eat. Consider seeing a board certified allergist for further evaluation, as avoidance of those foods can cause dramatic improvements. Gastrocom (prescription only - very difficult to get these days) sometimes can help. Inhaled steroids (essentially, asthma steroid inhalers that you swallow) work can help also - talk to your doctor to find out if these could be right for you.
