Decreasing TLC & Platelet

Hi All,

Recently, I had minor headache and low fever (b/w 99-101). As I am from India, this season is famous for dengue fever and I suspected the same. However, I am taking antibiotics after the doctor prescribed the same to me.

Now, the fever has subsided yet the reports aren't really appealing.

Here is the scenario -

Friday (Day 1 of Antibiotics) - TLC - 9600 /cumm
Platelet - 2.100 lakh/cmm

Monday (Day 3) - No fever
TLC - 7100
Platelet - 1.83

The doctor has suggested to get reports for the next 3 days to observe the pattern. He suggests that sometimes dengue fever takes time for its toll. However, I do not see symptoms such as high fever, nausea, rashes, etc.

What can be the other causes for this?
