Thank you for your query.

Leucocytosis and elevated eosinophils are not a good indicator. However if the tests mentioned by you are normal then we need to wait and watch and keep the child under constant follow-up. On occasions, such findings can precede a clearer picture later and you need to consult the specialist who can throw better light on the condition.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction. Please feel free to revert back in case you would like to share more information and seek clarifications.

Wishing your child all the best.....
