doctor said i have neutrophilia. gave me antiobiodics. been half a week, white cell count still high. what could it be? leukemia? i have no signs of fever, etc.hi. thanks for answering. not sure what count was, they said double-normal i think? is that Leukemia? i dont have headache or bleeding gums. i feel fatigue - but how severe would the fatigue be? is it just normal fatigue?

doctor1 MD

Hello. how high are the counts if it is leukemia the counts will be above 30,000 or so. Do you have any other symptoms like headache bleeding gums, fatigue
If not dont worry, the counts will settle down on their own it could just be reactive neutrophilia
Best wishes...

I took my son to doctor on tuesday last week. He said it was bacterial and could give him anything and that it had to work its way out of his system. He also stated that it would take 7 days. His temp got up to 104 by Friday last week and called his doctor. He did not respond and decided to take him to emergency. He was not drinking, would not swallow liquid tylenol and just cry. His month smelled foul. ER doctor gave him antibotics and sterolid shot. He has gotten better but now his gums are bleeding. Very red and still and 125 amoxicilian

Hi Doctor, I went to a strip club 18 days ago and during lap dance -

Stripper kissed me mouth to mouth { 3 times, each for 3 - 7 secs XXXXXXX not too deep or hard }
- No blood exchange, only tongue touched slightly.
- No sores or bleeding gums or open cuts in my mouth.
- No sores or open cuts or bleeding gums in strippers mouth

I touched her Genital surface -
- My hand touched only her vagina surface three times, each for approximately 3 secs.
- No finger insertion or No squeezing / stimulation involved, only touch on the surface
- No cuts or bruises on my hand
- My penis was inside my pant and inner wear all the time.
- During hand touching I felt her Vagina was dry and I did not feel any vaginal fluid on my hand.
- I had uncut nails due from past 2 - 3 weeks.

Lap dance lasted for 10 mins. After lap dance I directly went to restroom-
Washed my hands with excess hot water along with repeated usage of hand sanitizer twice and soap.
After cleaning hands, I rinsed my mouth few times for a minute with same hot water from heater.
After all these, I cleaned white coating on my tongue with my finger nails.

No visible spots of bloods were seen or felt on my tongue due to this. Only sometimes I see small spots of blood from tongue
when I scrap my tongue with my nails occasionally during brushing but not this time after kissing.

I went back to same club and spoke to same stripper again and she informed that -

She is HIV negative { don't know if that is true}, last she checked was an year back.
She is on birth control since 8 months and she does not get periods.
She is in stripping business from past 5 months.
She is mother of two children 5 and 3 years old.
Her mouth inner looked clean, free from diseases and she did not have any cuts / bleeding gums / sores.

After two day of this activity, I felt slightly high body temperature, sweating during night don't know if this is because of my excess tension and anxiety.

I am concerned if scraping my tongue with nails { if
nails had very small amount of deposits from her vaginal fluid which escaped air, running hot water, soap and hand sanitizer from washing} and also only after 3 days after this lap dance episode I noticed after clearly inspecting my mouth that in my lower left jaw, wisdom teeth is showing up through gums. Don't know from when is this tooth has appeared. Will this cause any contraction of the virus?
