Anyone heard of HSP?

My dd recently suffered from a condition which was diagnosed as Henoch-Schönlein Purpura. She had spots which didn't disappear when doing the glass test and show had a swollen face and hands. We spent quite a lot of time at the hospital with her because one of the side effects can be that the kidneys bleed. This was quite a worrying time. Although she appears to be over it from what I understand she could suffer from HSP again. I was just wondering if anyone else has experience of HSP and whether or not their dd or ds suffered more than once with it?

My friend's dd had it once. She's been fine since.
