Hi, welcome to HCM I am Dr Das
Basically, in tip, the placements get destroyed rapidly which causes bleeding .
There are many modalities of treatments available.
First, you have to admit your wife in a hospital for monitoring then arrange for placements from blood bank , consult with doctor for giving steroids and feasible monoclonalantibodies .
