Hello and welcome to HCM,

You have mentioned that you are suffering from a lung problem and platelet problem (low platelets).
There are many causes of low platelets.
Low platelet counts can be due to:
1. Increased destruction of platelets due to drugs, infections, etc.
2. Reduced production of platelets in the bone marrow.

Low platelets can lead to bleeding at trivial bleeding.
A complete blood smear examination, bleeding time, clotting time, and coagulation profile needs to be done find out the exact cause of these manifestations.

The lung problem is managed by your doctor so continue taking the treatment as per prescription.

I hope my answer is of help to you.
Kindly, post your feed back before closing the query.
Thanks and take care.
