    Please advise if anyone knows: Can ESR or CRP be elevated if you have a flu fever, an inflammation of the tooth or other inflammation /ear. eye, wound/?
    Can such prosaic things change the results of our blood tests if made when it’s on?

    Yes, both those can be elevated due to infection. Those were my daughter’s only abnormal labs at onset, and one reason they treated for an infection in the first place.

    Mom of teen daughter with Poly JIA since age 2. Current med: azithromycin 250 mg MWF.

    Yes. And those markers can be volatile. Just because they spike does not mean there is a systemic change taking place.
