Hey everyone, new to this thing called HSP. Started with spots on my legs, then within a few days it spread like wildfire, mainly on my Christmas party night when I was drinking all day! It’s all over my legs, buttocks, tummy , arms and severe on my left hand... I went to the emergency room on Christmas Eve night and the drs eyes were so big when I showed him my legs and arms... did urine test, has a small amount of protein and blood (just got off period) but now reading all the blogs it must be this crap. Eventually had blood done which came back normal, blood pressure high and a small amount of swelling, which is normal with me. Another dr came in and said she thinks it’s HSP, which looking at all the picts, seems to be the issue. I’m an American in England, which sucks bc they don’t want to start me on any kind of steroid like the states. I called my local GP and I can’t get a follow up until Jan 9th... so from dec 24th till Jan 9th, I’m basically a sitting duck not knowing wtf to do, eat, drink, or help clear up my body. I’ve had a stupid cold for a month now so I’m guessing that’s what triggered this? Not sure though... the sr at the hospital( 6 hours there) suggested I apply Vaseline to my skin, really dude?!?!? Anything over the counter to help with this??
