Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

What about your platelet and hemoglobin level?

Regards

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Platelet is 196 haemoglobin 141 the other thing that was out of range was RDW 15.4

Can you please share a picture of the rash?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The petechiae has cleared up now as it has been almost a week but another doctor confirmed it was petechiae

Thanks for the details

There is nothing to worry about

You most likely had a viral infection causing that petechial rash

Low monocyte are also due to that infection

These numbers will become normal in few weeks

There is nothing to worry at all

Please do let me know if you have any other question
