The act of agitating the skin as to relieve a sensation or irritation is called scratching. Thusly, you would need to "scratch an itch". It is physically impossible to "itch a scratch", no matter how hard you try.
A white blood cell count (WBC, or WBC Count) is used to determine the stage and/or type of cancer (usually Leukemia) that is being dealt with in a patient.
My friend's son has Acute Myeloid Leukemia and has had a blood cell count of OVER 200,000 on more than one occasion, 150,000 count just a few months back.
The normal range is about 4-10,000. Over that might mean a bacterial infection, it does not mean that you have cancer cells in your body.
If a doctor has ordered another WBC after you have already been diagnosed with Leukemia, and/or after a Chemotherapy treatment.. then he is checking to see if the chemicals had any effect on the cancer cells. If not, then more chemotherapy and/or bone marrow transplant will be done. Experimental drugs are a possibility, as are harsh combinations of chemicals.
The White Cell count is a determination of the ability of the immune system to fight infection. People with very low white counts are susceptable to illness mush easier than persons with normal counts. Very high counts can indiocate an ongoing infection in the body or a leukemic condition. Most leukemia patients have a decrease in white counts. The damaged stem cells that cause the Leukemia do not produce the correct anamounts of these important cells.
Fatigue as in mononucleosis is cause by too many white cells but Mono is gernerally benign and goes away after rest. It is cause by the Epstein-Barr virus and in most cases, the EB virus goes away in a few years of the inset of Mono.
The nerves near the ear, the cheecks are all closely related to the nerves in your teeth. From a dental perspective the position of the post auricular pain may be due to the empaction of your wisdom tooth on surrounding nerves. This would explain the pulsating pain and why you have had it before and it went away. Your teeth will grow minute amounts and then rest and then grow again. This is only a possible explanation.
I have a tattoo of two swallows on either side of my chest. I had them for about a year and then all of the sudden I got a raised, bumpy, itchy rash on them. I did a bunch of research and discovered that some people have allergies to certain inks. Most often you are not allergic to all the ink, but rather you are allergic to a specific color, so you will only get the rash in that area (mine only gets the rash where the blue ink is, for example). Also, it is usually sun exposure that causes the rash to flare up. Mine only appears when I am in the sun for a long time or if I go tanning. Otherwise it is fine. I have had the tattoo for 5 years now and it still happens when I am in the sun. Usually, after you have had the tattoo for awhile and it has healed, the only thing that can cause a rash or irritation like that is an allergy to the ink.
