What causes bruising on my right thigh? - Online Doctor Chats
The problem seems to be due low platelet counts
Can you help me understand what can I expect to occur over time
Should the platelet count improve as my flu symptoms subside?
generally the viral fevers tend to cause platelet counts to drop
you should get them checked once to see if that is indeed the cause
Is my platelet count related at all to the Naproxen Sodium I'm taking
It is possible... even tylenol can cause platelet counts to drop
These both belong to the category of non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs
and do cause platelet counts to drop
Since I need the Naproxen and Tylenol to function, should I just continue to tolerate the bruising until the platelets begin to rise as a result of the flu becoming cured?
I would advise you to stop both napraxen and tylenol
get the platelet counts checked
if it is too low, you may need a platelet transfusion
if the counts are not very low, you can wait for them to increase as the flu gets better
Can my diet increase my platelet count? I haven't been eating much since the flu has taken away my appetite
Diet has no direct impact in short term
let it get absorbed on its own
and if you develop any more bruises, then please consult your local doctor without delay
Yes, I can understand that
You don't need to be haemophiliac to develop low platelet counts
Please follow my advise given above
You will be alright soon
If I do some light exercise for work, I'm a photographer and I need to see some clients should this light exercise help the absorption process?
Is there anything else I can help you with?
I would advise against exercise for another week
get your platelet counts checked please
without knowing that it is all really a speculation
Thank you so much for your very helpful and detailed advise and I agree with your advise to get my platelets checked
Thanks for using the service
have a good day ahead
