Hi, dear.
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern. You have idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura. It may be chronic if long time. In that there is immune mediated destruction of platelets take place. So you should take immunosuppressive drugs like steroids to control that. Consult physician and take treatment accordingly.
Hope I have answered your question, if you have doubt then I will be happy to answer. Thanks for using health care magic.
Wish you a very good health.
