- It sounds like a good possibility that you do. The
little red spots I think are called pectiae or
something like that. Be careful do not cut yourself.

- Hi Pat,
I don't know a lot, but since my doc thinks there is a possibility I have
it, I started doing research. It is an auto immune disease, where the
immune system kicks into high gear, but recognizes the platelets as the bad
guys and destroys them. My first doc told me my low platelets were because
of the liver disease (cirrhosis). My new doc says the way the platelets
fell, does not indicate the low platelets is from my liver disease. He said
that liver disease would cause a slower decrease. Mine dropped quickly. He
is sending me to a hemotologist, and redoing ultrasound. It can also cause
a rash, of little purple dots.
