Attached my kids complete blood report. He is suffering from fever (103 Celcius). Can you analyse it? Is it something serious (like leukaemia)? Or just infection?
Thanks!

Brief Answer:
Possibly just an infection

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Possibly it is just a bacterial infection, as evident from the raised neutrophil count. I would not be worried about leukaemia from this report alone. It is unlikely to be serious if treated properly with suitable antibiotics.

Let me know if I could help further.

Brief Answer:
Please provide me with the list of medicines the child is being given.

Detailed Answer:
The sleepiness or drowsiness is not a good sign. It is unlikely to be due to the medicines unless antiallergics like cetirizine have been prescribed. Could you please provide me with the list of medicines that are being given. I will let you know accordingly.

Can you analyse these medications and let me know if they cause sleepiness as side effect?

Brief Answer:
Unlikely

Detailed Answer:
The mentioned medicines are unlikely to give rise to increased sleepiness.
I am not sure if giving Luminart (Artemether and Lumefantrine Dry Syrup) is justifiable, but anyway.
it would be a good idea to get the child evaluated.
