4 weeks ago my daughter came home from school, she felt absolutely fine but she had big and small red spots all over the back of her legs. Long story short we ended up in A&E and after seeing 4 doctors on the same evening she was diagnosed with HSP. While we were in hospital she developed joint pain and swelling on her ankle to the point she could not walk on it. In the last 4 weeks she has had joint pain on and off severe to the extent she has been on crutches more days then she has not. Rash was at times really bad and blistering on her feet. I had never heard of HSP. It is an auto immune condition that causes inflammation in blood vessels, joints and can effect organs such as kidneys. The last 3 weeks she has been in and out of hospital about 6 times. This week she is alot better. I was just wondering if anyone else has had experience with this and if it went away quicly or still problems after months?
