Bruising under nails

Bruising under nails

Hello All,

My Legs finger nails are like this from past a year and my ITP was diagnosed 6 yrs back. I have tried all treatments and nothing worked. Now I am not on any medication in particular, occasionally i take Revolade. I am sure my count is below 20k based on my bruises and I don't like to make my life worst so not going for blood checks freequently. I feel the size of those paches increasing day by day. Do any of you also face samething? I know, increase in counts might fix this but any other suggestion apart from that?
