Severe hand, foot, mouth--possibly related?

Our 20-month old daughter has Had ITP for last six weeks starting with a count of 1 and continuing with numbers mostly below 10, until last week, when she had a count of 69--woohoo! Just two days after that, though, she came down with hand, foot, and mouth that her pediatrician says is "the worst she's ever seen." She also had a 24-hr fever of 104 about 10 days before. While I know it could be coincidence, and that's what our docs are saying, I just thought I'd see if anyone else had experienced poor immunity to colds and other things alongside ITP. Thanks!

ITP does not cause poor immunity or cause people to get sick more often.

Do you suppose the doctors, nurses, or health care folks, who were around your daughter, could have accidentally transferred the hand-foot-mouth virus?

Possibly, or the other kids she has been around. Thx for the ideas.
