Brief Answer: suggestive of presence of bacterial infection. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic. The increase in WBC along with raised polymorph count is suggestive of bacterial infection. Bacterial infections such as middle ear infections, pneumonia, and urinary tract infections will be associated with increased WBC counts. X ray has been ordered by the doctor to look for the presence of bacterial infection such as infection in the lungs (pneumonia). If required, further tests such as complete urine examination, urine for culture and sensitivity, and blood for culture may be required to locate the source of infection. Therefore I suggest you to continue the medication as prescribed by the Pediatrician and be in follow up till the child completely recovers from the infection. Hope I have answered your query, if you have any clarification please let me know. Regards.

Brief Answer: I suggest you to follow the advice of your doctor. Detailed Answer: Hi Rama XXXXXXX Thank you for getting back. It is okay to continue the antibiotic for another 7 days as prescribed by the pediatrician. If the child responded to antibiotic and the child is having no fever, I suggest you to continue the medication and further investigations may not be required as suggested by your doctor. But be in follow up with the doctor and if necessary repeat complete blood picture after completion of antibiotic course with consulting the pediatrician. Hope I have answered your query, if you have any clarification please let me know. Regards.
