Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

since how long?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Does he have any other medical problems?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Is he on any medications for anything?

Customer: There was blood first noticed on holiday about 10 days ago
Customer: then this weekend at home on bath towel and last night he wore pants to bed and there was blood on them this morning
Customer: he is not on any medication and has no other symptoms
Dr. Shahzad MD :

Do you, by any chance, have a picture that I could see?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Picture of blood oozing or a recent picture of the spots that are bleeding or have bed?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

bled*

Customer: No he's left for work and won't be back til this evening
Dr. Shahzad MD :

Does he have similar spots anywhere else on the body?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Is he bleeding from anywhere else?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Has he been seen for this?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Any recent blood tests?

Customer: I haven't seen them as he was rushing to catch the train but he has from time to time had blood spots on his back that can bleed occasionally and he said that there was blood on his hand towel from one on his head this morning
Customer: No he never needs to see doctor and has had no blood tests
Dr. Shahzad MD :

I personally think that he should be seen.
Having spots on the testes or any part of the body that bleed indicate to me that he may have low platelets which are tested for by a complete blood count.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

He also may require blood tests to check for PT and PTT which indicate if his blood is too thin or not.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So the bot***** *****ne is that he needs blood tests and needs to be examined.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Consulting GP is the first thing.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Are you following me?

Customer: Yes
Dr. Shahzad MD :

Anymore questions?

Customer: What would low platelets result in
Dr. Shahzad MD :

Platelets are cells in the blood that help in clotting

Dr. Shahzad MD :

If they are low it can cause bleeding.

Customer: Is it anything to be concerned about
Dr. Shahzad MD :

Not really.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

But needs to be tested for

Dr. Shahzad MD :

and then treated if diagnosed.

Customer: Ok thanks
Dr. Shahzad MD :

I would also recommend that he should start taking vitamin C and calcium supplements aswell.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You are most welcome
