Thank you for the question.
Fever in children, accompanied by difficulty eating, fussiness, frequent sleep, purplish lips, and reddish rashes on the facial skin in children can refer to a variety of conditions. If it is true what you said, that your child's platelet level dropped quite dramatically (normally 150,000 to 450,000), then this condition could be due to a viral infection. Various types of viruses can infect the body and cause complaints like your child experiences, for example dengue fever, measles, hepatitis, HIV, and so on. Other factors, such as idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, immune disorders, severe bacterial infections, anemia, leukemia, to side effects of drugs can also cause decreased platelets accompanied by other complaints as your child experiences.
Although the doctor has given treatment, if other complaints arise after which are more severe, you should remain vigilant and have your child re-examined by a doctor or pediatrician, right? Possibly, the doctor will do a repeat blood test or assisted by a number of other supporting examinations, in order to determine the cause of your child's condition, then also provide the best treatment.
As for now, you should not panic first. Make sure your child gets plenty of milk and water, along with giving other variations of MPASI value balanced nutrition. Keep the environment around the child so that it is always clean, avoid it from substances that can cause allergies, and also keep it away from other people who are experiencing infectious infections.
Hope this helps ...
