Causes High Hemoglobin Levels And Low Leukocytes In Infants 6 Months?
hello …. I want to ask … r t I just 6 months old … 4 days fever does not go down …. always above 38’c ….. after a blood test … hb low leukocytes high …. that’s what disease well
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Both in infants and in adults, fever is a way for the body to tell that someone is infected, both by bacteria, viruses, parasites or fungi. This is proven by research that indeed with body temperature rising when fever, growth of most bacteria and viruses is inhibited.
On the other hand, the immune system that also works to deal with infections is white blood cells, also called leukocytes. Leukocyte production will increase when someone is infected by an infectious agent, one of which is bacteria. This is still not very clear why your child's Hb is low, but obviously there is a certain infection in your child, can be:
ARI or acute respiratory infection
Therefore, an examination by a doctor is needed to find out in what direction your child's tendency is. For that you should take your child to the pediatrician, for further examination. Your pediatrician will probably give antibiotics and heat-lowering as one method of treatment.
What you can do now is try to compress the forehead with warm compresses, give more milk, keep it away from the sick, pollution and cigarette smoke, and always be ready at home thermometers so that if the temperature reaches 40 degrees Celsius, or has a seizure, immediately brought to the nearest hospital emergency room to be dropped off immediately.
