Brief Answer:
needs testing

Detailed Answer:
Hi
I am Dr Mittal.
I have read your query.
I think I would be able to help you.
The symptoms of the query are quite suggestive of a possible thrombocytopenia. In this condition, the platelets are reduced and therefore , the person can bleed with relatively non traumatic causes.
I think I would suggest that you try to get the following tests -
1. A platelet count.
2. A PT/INR.
I think I would be able to help you find a treatment for the problem after you let me know the results.
I have tried to make it as simple as possible. I hope that the information helps you. Please feel free to contact us for more information. Best of luck. Dr Mittal.
