the present condition may not be the same - there is no obvious fever..
No need to panic - Get the child examined by a Paediatrician (Child Specialist) to rule out wheezing.
You can cough syrup till you see the doctor
Antibiotic may not be necessary
Good Luck

Pediatrician Dr. Sumitra Kumar Mukherjee's  Response
Dear sheleejim i am sorry to hear about your son. If his white cell count is high
it indicate he must have bacterial chest infection probably Pneumonia/Broncho pneumonia.
I think he should be seen in hospital and he should have blood test and chest x-ray. It could
be unresolved Pneumonia/Broncho pneumonia. The doctor will give him appropriate medications,
I wish your child speedy recovery. kindest regards Dr. S.K.Mukherjee
