As the TLC IS Raised, you still have infection. You should take another course of antibiotics as prescribed.
Take clarithromycin for 5 days and get the Total leukocyte count repeated.
Take steam inhalation and do gargles for cough relief.
Take a multivitamin supplement and good diet.
You can send me the picture of your throat so that I can suggest you better
