Though he was taking antibiotic, infection was still there.
It takes some time to get fully controlled.
Forceful vomiting can cause petechia.
Low WBC will not be the cause.
Low platelet count can cause petechia, but his other counts are normal.
You need not to worry about the count.
It is not very low.
In most labs, the normal range varies from 4,500 to 10,000.
His level is a little below that.
You are always welcome.
