Follow up: If this is from a routine check up, consider repeating the test in about 3 months. If you are not feeling well, then more workup is needed.

Wbc's: Your bloodwork shows a mild bacterial infection. Usually this is sinusitis, pharyngitis, otitis (ear) or a urinary infection. We need to decide what type of bacterial infection this is, and treat you with appropriate antibiotics.
