hi, my son was diagnosed about 5 weeks ago with a count of 10, his highest was 20, but now dropped to 11, currently waiting for the consultant to find todays blood results, which i know is low as the rash is back which was not present when he was above 13. i was told as its been over a month with no real improvement he may be refered to great ormond street hospital, and they will discuss treatment. although i seem to know a lot about itp at the moment i have no idea of the treatment as i was always told with little ones its likely to go without help. does anyone know what they are likely to do first, and how succesful it may be, also whats intailed with it? my son is absolutely petrified when having bloods, and any doctor or nurse, even my midwife as am currently pregnant, due to all this. any help, especialy from anyone who has had a child having treatment would be greatly appreciated. thankyou
