CBC blood test shows what infection ?
Can a CBC blood test show what kind of Bacterial infection do I have ? Have been on antibiotics for 10 days and infection is not going away. Hence I just had CBC blood test. Male 21

No. A CBC will tell you what kinds of wbc's are circulating during the infection, but not specifically what you are infected with. In general, an increase in granulocytes suggests a bacterial infection, while an increase in lymphocytes suggests a viral infection, but that's about it.


Pass it on...
A CBC (complete blood count) will show that you have an infection, but it can't tell which kind. You'd need a blood test called a 'culture and sensitivity (or C and S) to tell which type of species the infection is and which antibiotic it's sensitive to. You're probably not on the appropriate antibiotics.

yes, it can also show colestrol levels, dibetics, liver fuctions and alot that is why it is called a complete blood count.
