My daughter just got out of the hospital on the 12th. Due to fever and abdominal pain. Yesterday and today she complained about her throat hurting. No fever till this afternoon. Then after she got out of the bath we noticed a rash similar to a small cluster of petechai (so?). However it was bleeding not much. Maybe where she scratched it. I guess it is safe to assume that her platelets have dropped.

I am sorry to hear that. I have been through this with my son many times and I know how disheartening it can be. What was her latest platelet count?

Her platelets actually came up to 181k. And the doctor just said she had a cold. No idea why she had the petechai like rash.
