Child suffering with viral fever, blood reports show low eosinophils, high monocytes, WBC count. Cause?

Hi, My name is Pinky..I am from India. I have a four year old son. He is suffering from viral fever .We have got his blood reports and all seems to be in control. However, my concern is the count of Eosinophilis which is Zero and Monocytes which are high in his WBC . I need to know if it this is so only because he is having fever or is it permenant. Secondly how can we get it to normal.

Thanks for query,
In viral fever usually the total WBC count decreases.
When we see each type of WBC in viral infection neutrophils & monocyte percentage is some what higher then others.
Eosinophils increases in case of allergic condition.While lymphocyte in Tuberculous type of infection.
So nothing to worry.this type of blood picture is common in viral infection.If you see it after 2-3 weeks post fever it shows normal percentage.
