what is the cause of hensch scenlon purpua vasculitis
----------

Henoch-Schönlein Purpura
Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP) is a systemic vasculitis that causes the blood vessels in the skin to become inflamed, causing red spots. When the blood vessels in the skin get inflamed, they can bleed, causing a rash that is called purpura.

Henoch-Schonlein is a type of hypersensitivity vasculitis and inflammatory response within the blood vessel. It is caused by an abnormal response of the immune system.It is unclear why this occurs.

Vasculitis???


My son, 3, has had and still does have spots on his legs that the doctors haven't agreed on what it is. His doctor has said its vasculitis. A former pediatrician has said henoch schonlein purpura. At first I noticed it while bathing him and it looked like chicken pox. The spots aren't raised and dont bother him at all. Then they got bigger. His biggest spot is alittle bigger than a quarter size. Still, after blood work and all, nothing had been determined. I am wondering if anyone has heard of this and could help me. He has had them for about 4 mos. SOmetimes they get worse,like in the bath, they get redder. Thats all they look like. Red spots but, big. No one else in the family has them. He never complains either.

Unfortunetly form my understanding, it's one of those diseases where the the treatments are more fatal then the disease. But without them the disease will drag out longer and be more painful. The estimates I've seen are everything from 45 days to 8 years.  (+ info)

Could someone please tell me what to do for a friend of mine who has one of the rarest types of vasculitis?


They are having trouble walking and are in extreme pain and pain killers do nothing to stop the pain. What about swimming would that help. The neurologist has not given them any medication yet but will do so in about a week once he has finalised his diagnosis. However he is sure about the Vasculitis and the type.
----------

He should do whatever he feels physically capable of doing. I hope he gets on some effective medication soon.  (+ info)

Anybody have any info on alternative therapies or treatments that can help vasculitis?


I have vasculitis (rash) on my arms, legs and feet, had it since January, my dermatologist has told me nothing can be done in my case and I must simply wait until it goes of it's own accord. Vasculitis is the inflamation of little blood vessels, which then leak and cause pigmentation of the skin, it has started to get better, but I wondered if there was any alternative therapy, herbal remedies etc etc that may help my condition. I asked my dermatologist whether massage would help; she said that while it would do no harm it wouldn't make it any better. My GP and dermatologist, like alot of western practitioners are not very open or knowledgeable about the benefits of holistic therapies and so on, so I thought this would be a good place to ask the question.

Hope some of you can help me with your advice

Thanks in advance!

There is a solution and it is available. It is called glyconutrients. What it is, it is essential nutrients for the body to establish better cellular communication between the body's cells, therefore boosting the immune system and starting to heal crucial problems. Considering the co-payments one has to make for doctor visits and medication, or the payments for alternative medicine, investing in glyconutrients is a very good option.
Since glyconutrients are all natural without any chemicals are they absolutely safe and they do not interfer with any current treatment/medication. I take them myself now and found that my skin got a lot better, pigmentation is fading away, my cholesterol levels are down, my bloodpressure is down, I sleep better, I feel better, athritis pain has disappeared---and I have no need to see a doctor!!!
If you need any information go to this site:
www.mannapages.com/marianna
That's where I got my initial information from and I also order my glyconutrient from that site because I am taking all 8 essential nutrients to help my body help itself.  (+ info)
