Mumsnetters aren't necessarily qualified to help if your child is unwell. If you have any serious medical concerns, we would urge you to consult your GP.
Does anyone know what this can be caused by/ could be symptomatic of.I am scared to google it.
Sometimes too many anti biotics or infection.Also several auto immune conditions swing between low and high.Don't google there are so many reasons.Any other symptoms?Flu?
I took him to A&E as he had a meningitis type rash and high fever, bloody scary.They told me he has a viral infection, we are seeing the GP next monday to discuss things.
I am loathe to give him antibiotics tbh, unless he really needs them, I think they are pushed too often. So he's only had one course ever.
Well viruses upset production in teh bone marrow and the wbc can stay low for quite a while after a virus.They are prob just going to keep an eye on him
agree with noddy. try not to panic. when DH has had this blood test result he has just been told to get retested in a few weeks when he has had a chance to fully get over a virus/infection.
