Hello, the dermatologist said my son most likely has IgA Vasculitis. He also had a small amount of blood in his urine. They have him on 40mg of prednisone to see if it clears up in 2 weeks. They want to test for strep in his system.
My question is, could this be related to his severe ankle break that occurred nearly 3 months ago?
Or could the metal plate in his ankle be causing it?
The dermatologist doesn't think it is related but it seems so obvious. The rash started about the same time.
He had a high dose of morphine the day of ankle break and then an antibiotic and other painkillers. When the rash started to look concerning we took him off all painkillers. That has been a little over two months ago. Thank you for any insight you can offer
