How To Deal With Fever Due To Increased Leukocytes?
permission to ask: if the body is really hot inside but outside, what is the solution (Leukocytes are not normal)
Hello ReyyFeb, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Leukocytes that exceed the normal indicates the efforts of white blood cells to fight infection, or if too high also has the possibility of blood cancer (leukemia). White blood cells / leukocytes are a component of self defense against infection. When someone has an infection (virus / bacteria / parasite), leukocytes will increase. The number of normal adult leukocytes ranges from 4000-11000 cells / microLiter. Symptoms caused vary depending on the location of the infection and its cause, but generally fever becomes a symptom that is almost always there. Some non-infectious conditions that cause high leukocytes: smoking, physical stress, allergies, certain drugs (eg corticosteroids, epinephrine), have had surgical removal of the spleen, polycythaemia vera, leukemia.
Keep in mind that the condition of fever can not be assessed by "feeling hot from inside" or by palpation of the hand. Fever conditions need to be measured with a thermometer (for example axillary thermometer / which is placed in the armpit indicates fever when the temperature> 37.5 degrees Celsius). You should check with your doctor, so that your clinical condition can be examined and given treatment according to the cause. Bacterial infections will be given antibiotics, if caused by allergies the doctor will prescribe antihistamines, etc. Before meeting a doctor, it is recommended to take paracetamol (can be bought freely at pharmacies) to reduce fever or discomfort in the body. Drink enough warm mineral water (2 liters per day), avoid cigarettes and get enough rest (sleep 7-8 hours a day).
All of our suggestions and answers, hopefully useful, good afternoon.
