Allergic Reaction & CBC Results

I have had allergic reactions that my Dr. or I can figure out. The reactions were swelling of the eyes, rashes that travel, tongue swelling, hand swelling. He took my blood and did a CBC with Differential/Platelets. He says the test doesn't give any indication of what may be causing the reactions and said my WBC is a little high which could mean an infection. I asked for a copy, which I received and realized that I have several results in the abnormal range. I'm wondering if someone can help me interpret these results and tell me what it could mean and/or if it warrants further review. Here are the abnormals:

WBC: 12.3 H, Hemoglobin: 15.1 H, Hematocrit: 45.5 H, RDW: 15.3 H, Neutrophils: 8.9 H,

Thank you!
