Low blood platelets could be due to viral infections. Anaemia could also be the reason.
If you are taking any pain medications then you may need to consult your doctor to suggest alternate.
Pomegranate, Watermelon, Black grapes, Guava and citrus fruits will help in improving immunity to fight infections and also help you build platelets.
In-spite of good nutrition if the platelets are falling further you need to consult a Haematologist immediately.
