Hii my doctor today diagnosed me with ITP as for the last 5 days my count was constant at 3 even after giving PRC and SDP for 3 days. I don't have history of ITP within family. On 1st Oct I got mild fever as dengu was on a high I got my CBC and the count was 125 but degu report was negative but doctor started Dengu treatment with some antibiotics and hydrating drips . In the following 5 days the count came down to 11 and finalise settled at 3. Post getting a bone marrow check doc confirmed ITP by exclusion method. But I still not able to accept that I have ITP.as the count was really low now I put on steroids and is scared of the I'll effects of steroids. Kindly suggest any other way to confirm ITP. Also the antibiotic given in Dengu cases can induce an antigen to kill platelates that is one thing I will be researching and will keep you posted.
