My 21 months old baby recently diagnosed with ITP . his platelet count gone down to 9000 and he started getting bruises and red dots over his face. we went to doctor and they confirm it is itp and asked us to take bone marrow test which came out clean. they gave him three doses of IVIG and his platelet count goes down to 4000 and they gave him steroids and his platelet count increase to 12000 and we took discharged from the hospital. after a week we again did the blood test and again his platelet count down to 4000, we again went to hospital and they gave Anti D after his next platelet count his number was 17000, right now he is on Prednisolone 3 ml twice a day. Please suggest should i stop giving him medicine considering the side effect of the medicine. I am very sacred and confused. I just want my baby to get well and happy soon.
Please help and advise
