Hello,Thank you for your question.I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.
What are your symptoms now?
How is total WBC count?
How old are you?
Do you have allergy, or any past illness?
Are you taking any medicine?
Thank you for all the information,There can be a few causes for the increased count.Common ones are related to allergy.They include allergic rhinitis, asthma,eczema or other skin allergy.Helminth or parasitic infection can raise the count.In some cases, it can be from autoimmune diseases, neoplasia, connective tissue disorder etc.Some medicines can affect the count too.As you had cough & cold, it can be from allergy.
Your doctor can relate it after considering your history.
Again, as you had a history of travel abroad, any helminthic infection needs to be ruled out too.I hope this information helps.If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.Regards.
You are always welcome.
Yes, please discuss those possibilities with your doctor.If you are satisfied, please leave an excellent rating.Best wishes
