Hello, welcome to the site! My name isXXXXX will try to assist you with your medical question and any medical information you seek.

Dr. Brims :

I'm sorry to hear about this

Customer:

DO U MEAN lEUCOCYTES?

Dr. Brims :

yes

Dr. Brims :

What about her lymphocytes and neutrophils?

Customer:

LYMPHOCYTES 25

Dr. Brims :

And her neutrophils?

Customer:

74%

Dr. Brims :

Okay, this is not likely a bacterial infection, it is likely a viral infection, the rash on her hands may be caused by parvovirus

Customer:

OK SO ITS VIRAL INFECTION SHE GETS FEVER UPTO 102 AND WE HAVE TO GIVE PARACETAMOL EVERY 6 HOURS AND VERY HEAD ACHE ALSO

Customer:

WHAT IS PARVOVIRUS

Dr. Brims :

It is a virus

Customer:

SO WHAT TREATMENT, HOW MUCH RISK ON MY DAUGHTER, NEED ADMISSION IN HOSPITAL?

Dr. Brims :

Treatment is likely just with paracetamol, she should not need admission to the hospital, if it persists you should have her return to her doctor for another cbc

Customer:

OKAY WHAT PRECAUTIONS... I FEEL HER PLETLETS ARE CONTINUE FALLING AS 1ST REPORT 156000 AND SECOND 135000 AND SAME TIME MAEMOGLOBIN FIRST REPORT 13.40 AND SECOND 12.9 I AM WORRIED , ALSO WHAT ABOUT HER DIET?

Customer:

HAEMOGLOBIN*

Dr. Brims :

She can eat anything she wants, her platelets and hemoglobin are not low enough to be concerned

Customer:

BUT SHE GETS REPEATED FEVER AND HEADACHE, TILL WHAT TIME IT WILL CONTINUE?

Dr. Brims :

It may continue for 7 days

Customer:

I ALSO GAVE HER OFLOX 200 MG TWICE AND ALERID TABLET (CETZEN) FOR ALERGIC AS PER DR. INSTRUTION

Dr. Brims :

Ok, you should follow her doctors instructions

Customer:

ANY OTHER ADVISE FROM YOU

Dr. Brims :

Make sure she drinks lots of fluids

Customer:

OKAY SIR THANK YOU VERY MUCH. HOPE THAT SHE IS NOT ON RISK I AM WORRIED

Dr. Brims :

You're welcome

Dr. Brims :

If you are worried you should take her to the hospital

Customer:

HERE DOCTORS ARE GIVING MEDICINES ON ASSUMPTION LIKE ONE DR. SUGGESTED TO GIVE ANTI MALARIA TABLET EVEN THE MP RESULT WAS NEGATIVE SO I AM TAKING PRECAUTION BY ADMITTING HER IN HOSPITSAL

Dr. Brims :

ok

Customer:

WILL NOT TAKE YOUR MUCH TIME PLEASE LASLTLY GIVE ME YOUR FINAL ADVISE BASED ON ALL INFORMATION I GIVE YOU, ONE DR. ALSO SAID SHE MAY SUFFER FROM BLEEDING IF PLETLETS COUNTS GOES DOWN FURTHER SO PLEASE CHECK ABOVE DETAILS ONCE MORE AND GIVE YOUR FIANL ANSWER

Dr. Brims :

My answer is the same, there is no risk of bleeding with her platelets above 30,000

Customer:

OKAY I WILL GET CBC CHECKED ONCE MORE IN TWO DAYS IF FEVER CONTINUES< IS THAT OKAY OR I CHECK JUST MORNING AFTER 24 HOURS OF LAST CHECK UP ISNT IT THAT IT FALLS VERY FAST?

Dr. Brims :

Checking it in 2 days is fine

Customer:
