Treatment Of ITP In Infants With Steroids?
Evening doctor, when my child was 2 months old he appeared red spots all over his body but it was not severe and not much, I took it to the doctor and the doctor only if the platelets dropped (without a blood check) then my child was given apialys food supplements. The doctor said at that time that more than 2 weeks the red spots haven’t yet been checked for blood, but the red spots disappeared for about 3 days so I didn’t take them to the doctor again, I thought they were clear. R n r nWhile the age of my child 5 months and 20 days, red spots appeared, now there are even black and purple spots, the number is more than before. I took it to the doctor, I was told to check the blood, the result was that my child was diagnosed with ITP because the other blood cells were normal but the count was 5 thousand. The doctor recommended hospitalization and given steroids. R n r nI want to ask: r n1. Was the treatment correctly given steroids? Even though I read a lot of ITP articles in babies, it can heal itself without any treatment. R n2. Is ITP in my child considered acute or chronic? Because he has been bleeding twice with signs of blood spots on the skin. R n3. Can this disease be completely healed or will it carry over until he is an adult? R n r nAn answer from the doctor is very much we look forward to … thank you
