Hi we are from Australia my daughter who is now 4 was diagnosed with ITP a year ago her lowest count has been 2 and her highest 89 (she had been on a course of antibiotics for an ear infection) the only treatment she has been given is one course of prednisone and that got her count from 2 to 14 then it fell back down again they also treated her for h.pylori her count went up to 27, the doctors here don't seem to be to keen to treat her and still have the wait and see approach. She is due for her immunisations can she or should she have her immunisations her last platelet count was 15. What treatments would be advisable? At our last appointment was told they would like to do a bone marrow test before they consider treatment.
