Basic care: You may bruise easily and cuts may bleed longer, so avoid activities that can cause bruising (contact sports, for example) and take proper precautions with sharp objects. Make sure you let your dr./ dentist know about your low platelets, as heavy bleeding can occur after procedures. Heavy periods and nosebleeds can also occur.
