Healthy diet: White cell count can drop lower with some viral infections. Keep hands clean, frequent handwashing. The white cell count changes frequently and usually returns to normal shortly after a viral infection. A healthy, well balanced diet also helps, which may include fish as a protein and fish oil source.
