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?

In brief: 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.
