The WBC count that you have mentioned is absolutely normal in your condition. Generally in normal people the WBC count ranges from 6000 - 10000. But since you have an infection, the WBC count can rise upto 15000. This is because WBCs are the cells of the body that fight against the infection. A course of antibiotics should be all that you need.
All the best.
