Have you any idea what her hgb is? Low counts are linked to bruises. Maybe you just should watch it a few days, maybe it will gone by itself. Sometimes we don't understand the human body, but is everything fine.

Bruises are sometimes caused by defiency in vitamin C, that is why eating citruis fruits between meals is advisible

In citrus,only lemons are available here right now,oranges or grapefruits are not in season,although the multivitamin she takes daily contains 50 mg vit C .

Hi Zaini,

We experienced something similar last year - this situation resolved quickly and was explained by activities that I overlooked.  Please see:

Thalassemia Patients and Friends / Discussion Forums / Thalassemia-related Issues / Bruising with Rituximab - please help

You can also see the blood tests that were suggested in that thread - by Andy and Sajid (sigh..). 

I hope that our princess heals very soon.  Andy suggested that I give lil A plenty of fruits and vegies and that did help. 

Best,

Sharmin

I am sure that it will resolve soon.  The blood test results were completely normal for us - and I am sure they will be for lil z as well - but it never hurts to have the tests done. 

xoxo to lil z,
