May be viral source: Check your personal physician. With the information you gave there is a possibility of a viral infection. Lymphocytes usually protect us from viral infections, on the other hand, neutrophils protect us from bacterial infections. With viral infections, you will not need antibiotics. Most of time, viral infection symptoms will go away on their own, just rest well and keep a balanced healthy diet.
