    Hi.An elevated ESR can be caused by many things,mostly inflammation.  The test is nonspecific and will not tell you what is wrong, it just tells you that there is inflammation in the body.Have you done full blood count,differential or something else ? Do you have any other symptoms?

      The infection is the reason for the elevated ESR.It will take quite a long time for the ESR to go back to normal,probably 3 weeks.If you want,you can  repeat the ESR and the full blood count after that.

      The ESR will normalise weeks after the infection is gone.You cant make it go down faster.If you have no other symptoms i dont see a prob with you going abroad.The doctor told you ,you have infection based on Aa full blood count or were there other tests?

    Telling you,you have infection based only on ESR is not exactly perfect.I suggest you do FBC and differential and CRP just so you dont worry about it
