HI my son was just diagnosed with ITP, he is 2.5 years old.I have never heard of this until now,I'm very scared and all I do is cry and freak out with every bump n bruise. I fear for his life all the time now and constantly think about it. His doctor said his platelet count was 62,000. She suggested steroids but we wanted to wait and see if it increased next week. I just wanted advice on how to deal with the disorder and how to protect my son as well on things to try n not try. Thanks.
