Hello welcome to the health care magic

Your report showing neutrophils suggest towards acute infective abscess like condition.

For that antibiotic course prescribed for 7-10 days.

Abscess should be drained with incision and drainage and local dressing can be done daily.

No granuloma or any malignancy present, so don't worry.

Consult surgeon for examination

Take care

Hope this will help you
