I have a brother who is suffering from ITP since 17 years. Now he is 18 years old. Till now his condition has not improved. He has developed secondary complications like joint pains and swelling, blood boils, destruction of sweat glands and complete loss of ability to sweat. His body is not able to maintain body temperature and heats builds up rapidly which has to cooled by pouring water or being AC all the time. PLEASE HELP by giving some suggestions. We have tried almost all kinds of treatments and almost in the state of giving up. He was administered steroids for about 10 years.
