Can nonoxynol-9 result in vaginal inflammation and higher white blood cell count in vaginal discharge? Or is WBC count only related to infection?

Can nonoxynol-9 result in vaginal inflammation and higher white blood cell count in vaginal discharge? Or is WBC count only related to infection?

Nonoxynol 9 : Yes, nonoxynol 9 and the condom itself can lead to inflammation of the vahina and elevated white cells. This is known as leukorrhea. It is not necessarily an infection like yeast. ...Read more

My white blood cell count was 6.25... Is this normal or low? Is it okay to take prednisone for poison ivy with this WBC count?

  My white blood cell count was 6.25... Is this normal or low? Is it okay to take prednisone for poison ivy with this WBC count?

You're fine: Normal WBC. I trust lymphocyte and neutrophil counts were fine also. Take the prenisone for the poison ivy only if it's so bad you can't sleep otherwise. We're glad to help. ...Read more

Most common causes of Leukopenia are acute virus infection, HIV, Hepatitis B and C, some bacterial infection, Vitamin b12 deficiency and medications.

Close to normal: The normal white blood cell count varies mildly with each laboratory but roughly is between 5.0-10.0 the term " borderline" is used for any slight variation of that range ( up or down). Your provider will determine the significance of it and if it's necessary further follow up. ...Read more

Is a low white blood cell count dangerous?

Depends: The primary purpose of white blood cells (wbcs) is to fight infection. So, people with low white blood cell counts could be more susceptible to infections. However, it depends on why the wbcs are low. Some people simply have low WBC counts and live normal lives. Others could have an underlying problem causing the low counts. ...Read more

Why is my white blood cell count always high my dr said some peoples are just high? Mine have been for a year

Doc may be right...: Many people run a chronically mildly elevated WBC that remains normal for them. But the operative words here are that it is mild (normal is 4-10, 000) such as 11 or 12, 000; that it is repetitive and does not keep rising; and that there is a full evaluation of the type of WBC present. I would recommend a hematology consultation before presuming this is normal. ...Read more

My white blood cell count is 11.7, what does that mean?

My white blood cell count is 11.7, what does that mean?

Maybe nothing: The upper range of "normal" is about 10,000. Being slightly up is not really a big deal. White blood counts rise in the face of an infection or inflammation. It's your body's immune system doing its job. You may be fighting off a viral infection, or it may be "normal" for you. Why was it done? ...Read more

What does a half a point higher in white blood cell count mean?

What does a half a point higher in white blood cell count mean?

Not significant: White blood cells fluctuate frequently.Many different things can cause elevation of white blood cells- including infection, inflammation, autoimmune disease/vasculitis , physical stress ( post seizure activity, strenous exercise), chronic disease- smoking, diabetes, heart disease, malignancy -etc.I don't think a half point higher in WBC is significant enough to worry.

My white blood cell count was 1.6. Should I be very concerned about this and am I at risk of getting sick?

My white blood cell count was 1.6. Should I be very concerned about this and am I at risk of getting sick?

Low: This is rather low. It would help to have either your neutrophil percentage or absolute neutrophil count as this will tell if this is a more urgently concerning problem like neutropenia where you really could be at risk for an infection. Make sure you follow up closely with your doctor in regards to this. If your neutrophil counts are really low you may need to avoid salads and fresh fruit. ...Read more
