My Daughter has low white blood cells

Hi, please excuse me because i'm not familiar with this, last April my daughter was hospitalized because of a weird rash... the put her on a private room because they didn't know if it was contagious, they did all kind of test on her n they said it was a virus, she got better the rash went away, they check her blood (CBC) n then i guess the doctor ntice the white blood cells where low but not in an alarming way n he didn't say anything to us, 2 months after my daughter goes back for a check up n the doctor tell us about what happened the last time with her blood count and that he want it another test done (CBC) to make sure everything is ok. He called me today n tells me that he is going to refer my baby to a blood specialist because the white blood cells where low (not alarming) but that he will calle me back with an appoiment for the specialist. what is going on with my baby? what could this be? she is only 13 months old, she eats n plays n she looks fine i don't see anything different on her (physically or mentally) can anyone please gve me some advise, I am very worried about her. thanks for your time!

Re: My Daughter has low white blood cells

how low is her white blood cell count? I was told by my doctor, after testing and retesting, mine is low - its 3.8 apparently I was told it should be between 4 - 11. The doctor said I should be aware of this because I could be in a situation where medics/doctors found this out and I could start panicking. To date I've suffered no ill effects.

I've got this too. My white cell count is 3. I wonder what it means?
