Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
The urine routine test should always be interpreted along with clinical history .
Presence of leukocytes does indicate a urinary infection however 2-4 in no could be a variation of normal especially if child has no urinary complaints.
Also some viral infections can cause such a urine picture too.
Do follow up with your doctor and complete the course of medicines even if your child is feeling better now.
Wishing your child good health.
