Customer: replied 9 months ago.
no sign of bacteria in urine just blood protein
Expert:  Dr. Su S. replied 9 months ago.

Thank you for the input.
High WBC count suggests an infection.
He would likely need to continue antibiotics.
Any urine infection needs to be treated as well.
Impetigo can need n examination by dermatologist.
In skin infection, kidney may be affected occasionally.
So it needs adequate treatment.
I would recommend to try to get appointments sooner.

He needs to remain at rest.
I hope this information will be helpful.

Expert:  Dr. Su S. replied 9 months ago.

Lymph nodes can be swollen from skin infection.

Blood in urine is suggestive of kidney issue.

There can be swelling, pain in legs from skin infection.

All these are making him weak.

So he needs to take adequate rest.
