hi, my little boy is 22m old, a few weeks ago we noticed a small rash on his legs and some extra bruising but we wernt overly worried and thought we would contact doctor after the weekend, 2d later at my sisters wedding he had a small fall which cut his gums and his lip, he had a lot of bleeding from this so thought it must of been a worse fall, it kept clotting and then he kept choking on the clot, so we took him to local walk in centre who said if he didnt stop bleeding to go to a&e, it didnt so at 11.30 on a saturday night we took him, his bleeding lasted 7 and half hours but had stopped by 3am when we got seen, his rash came up realy strong and we told the a&e doctor who said it was fine and sent us home (we have put in a complaint), the monday morning we went to doctors about rash and were rushed to the childrens ward who then diagnosed itp, his count was 10, the following week they rose to 20, still waiting on this weeks results, he has no rash and only 2 bruises apart from the ones from his bloods. im confident they have risen, but just wanted to know if them rising is a very good sign or it is impossible to tell as i know they rise and fall a lot. i was given a lot of advice from our stay in hospital but the last 2 bloods the doctors realy didnt know anything about itp, one even tried to send us home saying his bloods were absolutely fine, and when i asked what his level was they said 'what level'. i know its hard as theres a lots that isnt known about itp, but any help would be greatly appreciated. sorry for the essay, am a very worried mummy x
