Dear Rottie
this can be serious - she needs to see a doctor as soon as possible - can be due to a severe platelet depletion, some blood cancers or serious liver problems. Some dangerous infections can also do this.

Dear Cyber Doc
I just want to thank you for your advise. We immediately went to the doctor and my daughter was admitted and treated for platelet depletion and seems to be on the mend.

Many thanks
