I started itching Aug. 1999. Diagnosed with ITP Oct.1999. I am in remission With a platelet count in Dec.1999 of 399,000. In Feb.2000 my count was 330,000. Before, during and after diagnosed with ITP I am still itching Could this be a sign that I still have ITP ? And maybe it's chronic and not temporary? Thank you for time. Jenielle We do not and can not deal with medical questions for good reasons. There are many medical sites on the web that do answer these types of Questions.


Is one of over 1 million sites.
