My son who is 6 years old had asthma from 1-3 years. his asthma is all gone, though now his nose is bleeding alot and when it bleeds, it continously bleed for a long time. Everytime i take him to the doctor, the doctor would only say well maybe because its winter and its dry and its normal and of course on summer my doctor just tells me it hot that's why its bleeding. Well I finally told the doctor that he's nose bleeding has been more often than usual. Now they found out that his platelets was 573, then another test went down to 473 and final test went up to 547. My doctor would not give me any answers to my question and she just said that she will need my son to be referred to Hematology.. I need help.. this is driving me crazy not knowing if there is something that i need to do. I feel helpless..
