My son has this to !

His abdominal pain was so unbearable.

I read about a man who excluded all milk products from his diet .. lactose, whey etc.. and it went away..

Guess what? MY SON IS DOING BETTER !

Only 2 days without milk and he has barely any abdominal pain and is feeling much better. He has no other symptoms left.

Swelling etc.. all gone ..

he still has his spots, but I guess that will take a little while to go away.

It must be some kind of an interaction with milk that causes this to happen.

My son had his hepatits B vaccine along with penisilin because of a tooth infection right before this began to happen.

Vaccines leave behind harsh metals that may react with other products we eat etc..

I don't know, but EXCLUDING MILK WORKS !

Not sure what one could do for a little baby though .. my son is 11 years old.

my niece had that a few years ago. she is now fine, but it does take a while for the diesease to run its course. she started with one symptom then moved to another then another than another. i think it might have been about 6 weeks in all? people with hsp DO need to be monitored so that their kidneys are ok - that is the one serious complication and can result in death IF NOT CAUGHT. my niece did have some kidney issues, but since they caught it they treated it and she was fine. good luck! be patient, and have hope!

if you have a slow internet conetion you can give me a way to email you and i can copy and paste info for you. But from what ive read up on and from my mother inlaw (who is a RN) ive learned, that HSP occurs most often in the spring and frequently follows an infection of the throat or breathing passages, and sometimes a reaction to meds. HSP causes skin rash, pain in the abdomen, and joint inflammation are the symptoms. it is generally a mild illness that resolves spontaneously. prognosis for patients with HSP is generally excellent. nearly all patients have no long-term problems. some patients have recurrences of symptoms, particularly skin rash, for months to a year after the onset of the illness. ultimate outcome, however, is usually very good for both adults and children. i hope some of this info helps, and the mayo link is a very good link ill post it even though Annette posted it already here it is again, folowed by a little info they had on there for treatment....

Children and adults with Henoch-Schonlein purpura should be kept comfortable while the disease runs its course. Rest and NSAIDs as needed to relieve joint discomfort and swelling may help. These drugs can cause stomach upset and even ulcers, so follow package directions carefully and take them with food or milk and for just a brief time.

Be sure to take your child for follow-up urine tests for as long as your doctor recommends. This helps alert your doctor to any serious kidney complications.

again hope it helped, im here if you just want to talk, im sure this is hard on you and you boy, bless you both, so i offer my shoulder no matter how many miles away, but im only able to get online mon-thurs 3pm-11pm
