Diagnosed chronic ITP, getting red pin pricks daily. Should I ignore them?

Hi im 32 years old and was diagnosed chronic ITP after a low platelet count on a routine Pap smear . After testing for months I was told I have chronic ITP and just be aware. My platelets stay around 114,000. My dr says not to worry unless I have gum bleeding or nose bleeds . I ve been getting red pin pricks daily but I don t think they are peticiae because they don t fade. Is this really something to ignore?

There is nothing to worry about with Platelet count 114000. It may be a type of allergic reaction or something else. But please repeat your platelet count once or twice to reconfirm that it is 114000.
