Vascular Purpura Treatments

Treatment

HSP usually gets better on its own. However, under some circumstances your doctor may prescribe specific medications to reduce symptoms and prevent complications. These may include:

  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)—to lessen joint pain and arthritis
  • Cortisone medication—for significant abdominal pain or kidney disease
  • Antibiotics—to treat infection
  • Cyclophosphamide ( Cytoxan )—to suppress the immune system when you have symptoms of severe kidney disease

Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider prior to starting any new treatment or with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition.
