Elevated WBC, decreased neutrophils. Dizziness, yeast skin infection. Used Prednizone, no effect. Any ideas ?
Hi - I have had elevated wbc for over 3 weeks (19.5) decreased neutrophils, I have unexplained dizziness almost daily. I have a yeast skin infection (confirmed with biopsy). I have neg test on urnalysis,cxr,liver enzymes. Orginally we thought I was having an allergic reaction as I had uncontrol itching in my arms only. I was treated with Prednizone but this had no effect. These symtoms just dont seem to add up to anything I, my fam doc or the determologist can think of. Any ideas?
Hi You need to do the complete hemogram with peripheral smear. Do check with your doctor if you have any enlarged lymph glands, liver or spleen. Depending on these results your hematologist would proceed to other relavant tests. Take care
