Avatar n tn Hi, welcome to the forum, the normal IgE levels fall below 100. Any level above 500 is higher and is suggestive of allergy or parasitic infection. He is known to have abnormally high levels. It can be seen in patients with atopic or allergic dermatitis.

Avatar n tn Try to detect the allergens. Consult an allergy specialist. First he may do a blood IgE levels to see if they are raised. Next, he will do skin testing. This test is painless, in which a very small amount of certain allergens are pricked into the surface of your skin. If you have allergies, just a little swelling will occur where the allergen was introduced. Reactions occur within about 15 minutes.

Avatar m tn Hi, I have been overexposed to TDI (toluene di-isocyanate) after working in a plant manufacturing foam car seat cushions. I had to quit working there due to the increasing sensitivity and difficulty breathing in the environment. I could smell levels of TDI that other co-workers couldn't due to my hyper sensitivity.
