Hello,Yes this could be because of the ITP.ITP can cause recurrent rashes.THis is all the more likely because she has also had a bruise on her arm.You need to see a doctor ASAP for this. Since your appointment is some days away you should go to the nearest ER. This is something that needs immediate attention in view of the fact that this could be ITP which would require immediate treatment.Take care - be safe and show at the ER ASAP - this may be ITP and she needs to be seen to immediately.
