Neutropenia does not always require treatment. It depends on how severe the condition is and what caused it.
Most often children get neutropenia after fighting off a viral infection. With time, their bodies will build up their neutrophil level again. Until then, they need care for any infection they get.
We give guidelines and reassurance about what to do if the child gets a fever, which is a sign of infection. A child who gets a severe infection may need to stay in the hospital and get IV antibiotics.
For more severe neutropenia that has led to infections, we may suggest giving your child injections of a neutrophil growth factor. This boosts the number of white blood cells your child's body makes.
