Herbal Remedies for Henoch-Schonlein Purpura (HSP)

Henoch-Schonlein Purpura

About Henoch-Schonlein Purpura (HSP)

Henoch-Schonlein Purpura (HSP) is a rare condition resulting from the inflammation of blood vessels. To effectively treat this condition, Ayurvedic experts at Planet Ayurveda have prepared extremely beneficial herbal formulations which are offered in the form of capsules and tablets.

The specific kind of blood vessel inflammation which triggers Henoch-Schonlein Purpura is known as 'Vasculitis' in medical terminology. This inflammation mainly pertains to the 'capillaries', that is, the small blood vessels in the skin and also in the kidneys. The inflammation leads to bleeding in the skin, kidneys and abdomen; thereby causing purplish skin rashes, pain in joints, and cramps in the abdomen.

Henoch-Schonlein Purpura -- which is also referred to as Anaphylactoid Purpura -- can affects people of all age-groups, though it mostly occurs in children aged less than 10 years, and in young adults. Generally, most of the cases of Henoch-Schonlein Purpura are reported in autumn, winter and spring; with boys being more prone to this condition than girls.

The herbal remedies offered by Planet Ayurveda for managing Henoch-Schonlein Purpura have an anti-inflammatory and relaxing action on the inflamed blood vessels; and also strengthen the connective tissue in the body parts affected by this condition.

Causes of Henoch-Schonlein Purpura

The precise cause of Henoch-Schonlein Purpura is not yet clearly known. Nonetheless, medical practitioners believe that the immune system of the body apparently plays a role in targeting the blood vessels which get inflamed in this condition. Specifically, an abnormal immune response to an infection is often considered an important factor in most of the cases of Henoch-Schonlein Purpura.

Broadly speaking, Henoch-Schonlein Purpura can be caused by:

  • An infection of the throat or the upper respiratory tract
  • The use of some specific medications, such as steroids and medications which affect platelet function
  • Vaccinations for cholera, typhoid, measles, hepatitis b, or yellow fever
  • Certain foods and chemicals
  • Certain congenital disorders, like telangiectasia (fragile skin and connective tissue)
  • Insect bites, and
  • Disorders which affect blood clotting.

Symptoms of Henoch-Schonlein Purpura

Some of the common symptoms which hint at the possibility of Henoch-Schonlein Purpura include:

  • Rashes, mainly on the legs, feet, and buttocks
  • Pain and swelling around the joints, chiefly in the knees and ankles
  • Abdominal pain, bloody stools, vomiting, or nausea
  • Blood in urine due to kidney-related diseases.

These symptoms of Henoch-Schonlein Purpura show up in most patients after they have been suffering from headache, fever, and muscular aches and pains for around 2-3 weeks. In some rare cases, Henoch-Schonlein Purpura may also affect the brain, lungs, hearts and other organs of the body.

Diagnosis of Henoch-Schonlein Purpura

For diagnosing Henoch-Schonlein Purpura, doctors carry out the following tests:

  • Urine test
  • Blood test
  • Checking the blood pressure
  • Skin biopsy.
