Thank you for the question.
Fever in children there may be many causes, for example due to side effects of immunization, infection, excessive heat exposure, immune disorders, hormonal disorders, malignancy, to the side effects of certain drugs. Among the various possible causes of the fever, the most common is infection. There are so many types of infections that can cause fever. To find out the type and cause of the infection, in-depth interviews are needed related to complaints that arise, physical examination, or supporting examinations, such as blood tests, urine tests, stool tests, x-rays, and so on.
Referring to the description of the results of blood tests that you submit, found an increase in the level of neutrophil segments (normally ranges from 50-65%) and decreased levels of lymphocytes (normally around 25-35%), while the results of other tests are still within normal limits. This condition, if it appears accompanied by fever, may indicate a viral or bacterial infection, burns, rheumatic fever, kidney disorders (such as glomerulonephritis), allergies, exposure to excessive cigarette smoke, bleeding, leukemia, side effects of steroid treatment, and so on.
However, interpreting the results of laboratory tests cannot be done only by online consultations like this. You need to bring the results of the examination directly to the doctor or pediatrician who examines your child, so that he can be handled properly according to the cause. In order for your child's fever to improve, you can first give him paracetamol according to the doctor's recommended dosage. Let your child rest more, give him a lot to drink, eat a variety of nutritious foods, and avoid carelessly giving children other drugs without a prescription directly from the doctor.
Hope this helps ...
