I just labs back with the same stuff on them.
Neutrophils are white blood cells.  They can indicate infection or some some cases inflamation.  So, neutrophils can increase with a strep infection.

I don't thing strep would cause your tongue to burn though.  If you have been on strong antibiotics, especially if it has been a long course, you could have a thrush infection starting.  I would recommend that you gargle with a warm salt water solution to kill the thrush yeast.

Feel better.

you are wrong..
Strep Throat
Strep throat is an infection caused by group A streptococcus bacteria and is the most common bacterial infection of the throat, according to MedlinePlus. The infection is contagious and can be spread from direct contact with saliva or nasal secretions of an infected individual. The most common symptom of strep throat includes a sore, burning throat that may be red in color and covered with white patches. Other symptoms of strep throat include fever, headache, stomachache, nausea, chills, discomfort, loss of appetite, swollen lymph nodes and difficulty swallowing. Because strep throat is a bacterial infection, antibiotics are successful in treating it. MedlinePlus notes that antibiotics are usually taken for 10 days and that the entire round of antibiotics must be taken even if symptoms go away.
