I think that is caused by low platelet levels. I would suggest the child be given L-methylfolate to encourage platelet production.

All we are saying is give thals a chance.

Her S.ferattine is 3780. We are giving her desferal 500mg with pump on alternate days. How much time it could to lower iron level to normal

I don't think you'll make fast progress chelating only every other day. If possible, an oral chelator should be added. You should also give the child 100 mg of vitamin C when you start the desferal session to free up more iron to be removed.
