This could be an indication of infection, has he been unwell lately?
yeah, nose bleeding, high fever and no appetite for any kind of food
that is the reason for the high count , if he is fee of symptoms and has recovered get the tests done again they probably will have come down ..
will wait for another week for his cbc and bloodsmear, hope all is well and okay, thanks for ur reply
