Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.

I would like to know few things here which would help me in suggesting you better:
1.) Since how long do you have fever?
2.) Do you have bleeding tendencies?

Your History suggests you have Bernard-Soulier Disease, Your treating Doctor will be able to explain it to you, but it has to be confirmed, kindly get yourself examined by a Physician so that he/she may examine you and suggest tests like CBC count, Bleeding time, Platelet aggregation studies or Flow Cytometry to confirm it and start treatment.

Kindly don't worry as It is generally a supportive treatment, you will have to stick to your treatment plan and go for regular follow up.

Wish you Good Health.
