YUP YOU COULD HAVE AN INFECTION ASK THE DOCTOR

You have an infection.

You do not have an Infection, if the WBC count goes above this number than your body is fighting off an infection and that's why the number has risen. I think your doing just fine, but if you have presenting symptoms, such as a cold, headaches, sore throat, fever, or any other upsetting problem go to your doctor.
White blood cells (a.k.a. leukocytes) are cells which form a component of the blood. They are produced in the bone marrow and help to defend the body against infectious disease and foreign materials as part of the immune system. There are normally between 4x109 and 11x109 white blood cells in a litre of healthy adult blood - about 7,000 to 25,000 white blood cells per drop. In conditions such as leukemia this may rise to as many as 50,000 white blood cells in a single drop of blood. As well as in the blood, white cells are also found in large numbers in the lymphatic system, the spleen, and in other body tissues.

Well, seeing as the normal range of WBCs (White Blood Cells) in your body is 4,300 - 10,800 cells/¬ĶL/cu mm and yours is clearly higher, that could mean a variety of different things. You would need to take a blood test called a White Blood Cell Differential to determine exactly which type of white blood cell is elevated in concentration. For example if your Eosinophils are elevated, that means that you have some sort of histimatic allergic reaction. Or if your leukocytes are elevated that could signify something a bit more sinister, like a well developed bacterial or fungal infection. Either way, talk to your friendly physician about it and take care.
