In brief: Self-educate

Often this requires no treatment beyond being closely followed.
When platelet counts drop below 90,000, it can be troublesome. Get checked for lupus and HIV infection, and comply with whatever your hematologist thinks best.

In brief: Be careful

The primary worry is bleeding.
Follow your doctors recommendations for further testing and treatment. Other serious diseases like lupus or leukemia may have to be ruled out. Good luck
