thanks ! google said platelet count herpes???? I thought it was just a blood blister ?? my bloods are good platelet count last week 178

Expert:  Dr. David replied 9 months ago.

it may be type 1 oral herpes fever blisters or cold sore in your cheek if your immune system is down

if you haven't been getting enough sleep recently.

I would not worry about your platelet levels or general health.

those are fine.

keep exercising and eating healthy.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.

my immune is ok?

not my wbc ?? I have no fever and heve been sleeping ??

I tought it was a bite when I eat food Saturday

Expert:  Dr. David replied 9 months ago.

yes, your immune system is fine.

your WBC counts are fine.

yes, sometimes just eating food can cause you to bite the inside of your cheek.

this is not serious

I would not worry.

the fact that my wbc goes up to 5 in march and then relaxes down to 3.8 now and stays there with the diff being constant tells you its working well along with the other immune markers heamoglibin etc ??
