Hello,

Leukocytosis or high WBC count may be caused by several conditions including bacterial infection, inflammation, leukemia, trauma, or stress.I would suggest a differential leukocyte count.It will suggest which component of white blood cells are elevated. Raised neutrophils are found in bacterial infection,Raised lymphocytes are found in viral infections such as glandular fever and  lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL),raised eosinophils are found in parasitic infections, asthma, or allergic reactions and raised monocyte and basophils are found in monocytic leukemia, chronic ulcerative colitis, regional enteritis and leukemia or lymphoma respectively.

Hope it helps.Take care and regards.
