Thank you for posting your query.

The blood reports may suggest a minor infection, such as throat, chest or urine infection. Sometimes, it may happen with dehydration.

Also, the high BP needs to be rechecked and followed up. If it remains high, regular medications may be required. The cause of high BP should also be investigated, as you are a young hypertensive.

I hope it helps. I would be pleased to answer any more queries, if you have.

Wishing you good health,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM

Thank you for getting back with more details.

Amlodipine is a good medicine for high BP. The dose can be adjusted after checking the BP further.

Regarding the infection, even if it is a viral infection, there is no need to worry, as it is self limiting, and would improve on its own.

Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM
