I can't stress enough to go back to the time when the Hsp began and figure out what was going on health wise with you. Did you have strep? Did you start a new medication? Did you have mouth work done-cavity? Root canal? Wisdom teeth pulled? I researched this disease for 3 plus years and the main causes are infections and medications. Doctors don't know much about it and there is no cure. They don't want to search for the source or the cause. My daughter was diagnosed at 13 years old the same month that she had her wisdom teeth pulled . After fighting this nightmare for 3 years with medical doctors we went to a homeopathic doctor. He sent me to a dentist to see if she had an unknown infection in her mouth under the gums. Turned out she did! 2 big holes of infection (called cavitations) where her wisdom teeth were removed 3 years prior. Her gums healed but instead of bone growing back under the gums it was pockets of infection. She never had a fever and her mouth didn't hurt. She had headaches at the back of her head and inflammation in her optic nerve along with all the other Hsp symptoms. After surgically removing the infection it took her body some time to heal but is Hsp free for 3 years. While you are searching for a cause the Dapsone drug did help with the rash. It was prescribed by a dermatologist. Steroids made it worse and immune suppressant drugs have lots of side effects and if there's an infection in your body it makes the infection worse because your immune system can't fight the infection and so the infection plays havoc!! Once she got off Dapsone or immune suppressive drugs the rash came back so it was masking the problem. Dig deep for a cause, be persistent and research! Good luck
