I've had two bloodwork labs over the last month, both which show basically the same result:
WBC High (12 last month, 14.2 this month)
Neutrophils (Absolute) High - 8.5 last month, 9.9 this month)
The Neutrophils percentage is normal (70-71%).
All the rest of the differential is within normal range.
I feel fine - what could be the problem?

I think I may know why this is happening. I've had hidradenitis suppurativa for many years (20), but I didn't think about it in relation to this. I have a few active sites right now, although they are not too painful. Is it possible that HS causes the WBC and neutrophils to be chronically elevated?
