My 10yr old daughter has not been sick. She came home from school Thursday Oct. 9th with a giant purple bruise on her inner ankle. It was raised and had a red ring around it. When I touched it it felt how and she jumped and said it stung. I looked closer to see if it had a lil whole in it. You know like a sting or bite mark. THere was nothing there. I treated her for both a bruise and a bite. I gave her Benadryl and put after byte on it. I also put some ice on it and gave her Motrin. She went to bed as normal. THe next morning she woke with a low grade fever and had 3 more of the big bruises. I didn't send her to school. By 11 am she had 12 bruises and had a fever of 102.3. I took her to the ER. THey said she had HSP. She had not been sick at all prior to this break out. The "bruises" are not in clusters. They are very painful and she keeps running fevers. She has also had trouble walking due to joint pain. Her appetite keeps fluctuating just as her energy level. She is mixed; black and italian. That is relevant BC HSP rarely affects African Americans. Just as it rarely affects girls. >>>>>>>These linkns are pictures of her rash...>>>>>> http://i37.tinypic.com/2dierl4.jpg >>>>> http://i36.tinypic.com/2z80pl0.jpg
