My 4 year old daughter was weepy and under the weather but wanted to go to school. When i collected her she had a red rash on her things and said she had funny tingly feet all day. The doctor said it was an allergic reaction and nothing else was said or done. The following morning she was covered in the red blotchy rash and i took her back to the doctors, they said it was the reaction and gave her cream and an anti-histamine syrup. I did not question this and gave her the medicine. All day she had very bad diarrheah. At night she had a dry cough.
Wednesday morning we went up to get dressed and she said she was stiff and couldn't use her feet, i took her bed socks off to be totally horrified! Her feet and ankles were so swollen and purple and bruised!! I panicked and returned to the doctors, three different doctors saw her and didnt know what it was. We were sent to hospital for blood tests. They diagnosed HSP but a-typical where the rash appears above the waist, it was all over her face, tummy, arms and hands!Her bottom and legs were the worst. She couldn' even stand up or walk, very scary.
She had high blood pressure. Her urine and blood pressure are now being monitired by a nurse once a week. But i am reading that some children with this are being tested every day? I am worried about her kidneys, and temporary arthritis, will it affect her later on in life??
