I had a fever and had a sore throat. The doctor was given medicine and antibiotics. The next day I was allergic to the antibiotics. I went to the doctor again, my condition has no fever (37 ° C). By the doctor who stopped the antibiotics. My leukocyte check is 13,000. R n r nI can’t get replacement antibiotics because my sore throat has gotten much better. The question is whether my leukocytes can go down on their own in line with a better immune system? Because the medicine given now is only allergy medicine. R n r nThank you.

Hi Armita,


Laboratory tests where the leukocyte level is higher than the normal limit (the normal value of leukocytes is 4,000-10,000 / microliter of blood) generally indicates an infection has occurred. Leukocytes are one of the main components of the body's immune system to fight disease. Leukocyte levels will increase as infection occurs and then return to normal when the infection is resolved.


An infection that causes the increased levels of leukocytes that you experience is sore throat. This condition is generally recommended by doctors to take antibiotics to fight the infection that occurs. However, because you experience drug allergies the doctor then stops giving antibiotics. It is highly recommended that you remember and write down the name of the antibiotic that causes the allergy so that in the future you can tell the doctor not to prescribe the drug and replace it with another type of antibiotic.


You don't need to worry too much about the increased leukocyte levels. Generally, leukocyte levels will indeed drop (return to normal levels) when the infection is resolved properly and the body's resistance increases. But if you still have doubts, you can go back to the doctor and do another blood check to confirm your condition.


Here are some suggestions for you:

Consumption of warm water with lemon juice and honey can reduce throat complaints that you experience
Eat healthy and nutritious. Increase consumption of vegetables and fruits, especially those containing vitamin C.
Avoid greasy foods
Get enough rest
Get enough daily fluids
