Hi,thanks for query.Yes the report is normal.This much pus cells can be present normally or may be due to sample contamination.So inspite of report deciding any treatment,the response to treatment and complain of patient is important.If the child is fine ,you can discontinue further treatment and report also.
wishing you good helath.
