Hello,

If your child is drowsy and lethargic and having episodes of vomiting, nose bleeds then you should consult your doctor and ask for transfusion of Willebrand factor (VWF).

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Khan Shoeb Mohammad Sher Mohammad
