Pediatrician 's  Response

Thank you for your query.

ITP is a condition in which platelet count has to be monitored and platelets may have to be administered to control any bleeding episodes. Other medications are given to help keep the platelet count within normal limits.

According to you, your son is responding to Unani treatment. If you are satisfied with it then do continue it but seek medical advice when ever there is a bleeding episode.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son all the best.
