Hello doctor,

I am 20 year old male. From the past three weeks, I have nasal congestion, which is not getting cured. I was also suffering from nausea and increased bowel movements. The nausea is cured, but I feel sick from inside. Is there anything serious? In my CBC reports, the neutrophils are 44 %, lymphocytes are 51 %, and platelets are 1.70 lacs.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You have not mentioned the medication that you are taking.

According to your CBC report, you have high lymphocytes count. It is suggestive of a viral infection of the upper respiratory tract. I suggest you do the following investigations.

  1. Rhinoscopy nose examination.
  2. PNS (paranasal sinuses) x-ray.
  3. Throat swab and send it for influenza testing by PCR (polymerase chain reaction) and for culture.
  4. Auscultation, if suspicious, then chest x-ray can be done.

Meanwhile, I suggest the following. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and start taking the medicines after their consent.

  1. Decongestants like Phenylephrine for a symptomatic relief.
  2. Take rest and drink more water.
  3. Steam inhalation three times a day.
  4. Avoid excess spicy foods.
  5. Take vitamin C lozenges four times a day for five days.

If there is no improvement, and if influenza is positive, then your doctor will give you Oseltamivir like anti-influenza medication. Consult an ENT specialist for examination.

Take care.
