For this, you should make serious lifestyle modification like healthy diet containing lots of fruits and vegetables, plenty of water. Avoid fried, processed foods. Exercise for at least 30 minutes a day for at least 5 days in a week. Your IgE level is also high, which is usually raised in allergic or parasitic infections.
