You should get him admitted to a hospital first. Such A low platelet count usually is associated with dengue or a viral infection can cause such a picture too..negative dengue tests do not rule out the possibility of it. There seems to be an increasing trend in the counts which is a good sign. Consult a physician at the earliest
