Henoch-Schonlein Purpura :: Pure Rash Due To Braces?

Mar 9, 2016

My 15 year old daughter about 4 weeks ago came out in an alarming blood rash under her skin on her legs and arms. She had a little blood in her urine but otherwise blood tests were fine. Doc thinks it HSP following a sore throat although this was only mild. On reading the symptoms of HSP most don't apply to her. She's had no sore/swollen joints. The rash seems to clear a little then come back worse again. My question is does anyone know about or experienced a rash like this whilst wearing tooth braces. She's had them for almost a year now. I am allergic to nickel and I've read that nickel is used in Orthodontics often coated so this can wear off over time, which could explain while the condition has only surfaced now. She is close to having them removed so am hoping it may resolve itself as she is very distressed with it.

Henoch-Schonlein Purpura And Tooth Braces

My fourteen year old son was diagnosed with HSP about eight month ago about the same time he started wearing braces for his teeth, recommended by our dentist. Initially he had stomach pain, swollen ankles, etc. In and out hospital emergency rooms five or six times. Eight month later, rashes are still here. Doctors could not help, no cure. As parents we suspect it is something to do with his braces. We will visit our orthodontist tomorrow to seek his point of view. Does anyone have same experience with braces?

Henoch-Schonlein Purpura For Life?

I had two bouts of HSP when I was a child. The first lasted a couple of weeks when I was about five. The next bout lasted for 4 years - from the age of 6-10 years old.

I've never felt truly 'well' and have now been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME and hypersomnia (it means I want to sleep at the time) I was wondering if this could be an aftermath of the HSP?

The rash has gone and so has the swollen and tender joints. Urine samples come back as normal now (not +4 protein and blood in it like when I had HSP.) unless I have a UTI.

But I still have the same abdominal pain and tender joints (without the swelling) and muscles. I feel constantly fatigued and can't seem to put weight on. My immune system is weak and I seem to catch every bug going around.

Henoch-Schonlein Purpura :: Ankle Swollen

Five days ago we rushed our four year old son to A&E where we were told he had HSP. the hospital were wonderful made our son comfortable on the ward and we got settled for the night at his bedside. we now have a nurse coming once a week to check on him and i have to check his wee in a morning ( which has been clear so far).

I was under the impression he was getting better so i let him go to school and since he came home his ankles have swollen up like balloons though he says there not painful.

i don't know now if i should allow him to return to school or maybe if he could go half day. he loves school and i know he wouldn't get any rest at home as he has a two year old sister. I am really unsure of how to treat this disease as you never seem to know what the next hour is going to bring let alone the next day.

we are praying that this does not spread to his kidneys and stomach as it hasn't done yet.

Henoch-Schonlein Purpura :: Left Me With Stage 3/4 Kidney Disease

I'm a 37 year old man who was diagnosed with HSP in 2007. My symptom was the rash which appeared all over my legs and buttocks. The rash went away but left me with stage 3/4 kidney disease. I feel very scared this will lead to total kidney failure. My recent results doesn't look good with my creatine being 216. This has ruled my life and I'm so upset this could happen to me. The doctors don't know anything. All they have done is put me on 10mg of Ramipril and basically hope for the best. I'm getting married in July to my beautiful fiancé who I love so much but I seem to focus more on this disease and what might happen to me in the near future than her. I'm going to try an alternative way to help my condition. Systematic ideology (excuse the spelling) This focuses on strict diet control, with taking 100 percentage herbal ingredients. The therapy focuses on targeting muscle groups and emotional part of the body. Has anyone else tried this? Would love to hear from anyone in the same boat as me and is there anyone out there that has been in the same situation and continued in stage 3 for a very long time.

Henoch-Schonlein Purpura :: Treating Vasculitis-HSP With Medical Cannabis?

Has anyone ever used medical cannabis to help treat HSP in children? My 13 year old nephew was diagnosed with a severe case of HSP and was recently released from a week stay at two different Hospitals in Arizona.  They have him on two different blood pressure medications (the Hsp caused him to have very high blood pressure) and told him he could take tylenol for the pain along with weekly urine tests and monitoring his blood pressure daily. However, since he's been home from the hospital (3 days now) he can't eat, the pain in his joints, muscles, and stomach has yet to diminish, and his rash has flared up again (ankles, thighs, back). He has zero appetite and a lot of pain and discomfort.  I'm curious to seek out treatment that involves using medical marijuana with less THC and more CBD, which i've been told is safe to give children (less of a high but helps relieve pain and nausea) and help get his appetite back. I know medical marijuana is super controversial, especially with children, but it seems steroids and pain medication from doctors has a long list of side effects and other problems.  

If anyone has ever tried medical marijuana to treat HSP, please let me know. No doctor will ever talk about or advise us when it comes to outside remedies.......but i'm thinking outside the box, we need to get his appetite back and help lessen his pain.

Dental Health :: Braces Or Jaw Surgery? 0.7 - 1mm Under-bite

I'm 19 years old and I have roughly about 0.7 - 1mm under-bite. My orthodontist recommended me to get jaw surgery or braces. I've heard that jaw surgery takes a long period of time for recovering, and plus, it's expensive. And for braces, I worry that they might not be able fix my teeth into the right positions, but I'm more convincing to it.

Dental Health :: Need Extractions For Braces Because Of Overcrowding

I just got braces on as an adult two days ago. During our initial consultation, I was told I would need to get extractions at some point because of overcrowding. For the record, I already have all 4 wisdom teeth out. My orthodontist said that it could happen sometime after I get the braces on, but didn't specify when and forgot to ask him. At first he said he would probably have all the second premolars extracted. I brought up my concerns that, because I only had 2 molars and second premolars back there anyway since my wisdom teeth were gone, and because I had a crown on one side that did not chew very well from being dull with many bite adjustments, I asked if we could extract the 1st premolars instead (or as he called them, the eye teeth). He got back to me and said he thinks we can do that. Quite frankly, I don't want any teeth removed but if it's absolutely necessary, which ones would be the best to get removed? Also, when would be the best time to do it at this point?

Dental Health :: Metal Taste From Braces

I should preface this with the fact that I've had my braces on for close to half a year and I just started having this problem a few days ago. My braces create an meme sting metallic taste in my mouth. It has been nonstop since around three days ago. I made an appointment today to see my orthodontist and I was told that no bands were loose (most of the bad taste, as much as I can tell, comes from the metal brackets that are banded around my teeth) and nothing was found.

I got some mints but the relief is only temporary to the metal taste.

Knee Hurts Extremely Bad - Braces Didn't Work

I'm 17 years old I've played volleyball basketball and track my whole high school career and I've always had problems with my knees and ankles but I've been going to the doctor for my knees for like 2 years now and I've had like 3 MRIs they never tell me anything I've tried braces but they don't work. My left knee is way worse than my right but they both hurt. It started out feeling like I just had to crack my knee like if you straighten your elbow and it cracks but then it progressed and know it hurts extremely bad when I start running and I can't stand up after sitting like straightening them hurts horribly bad. Sometimes while I'm sitting they ache and I feel like it's on the inner side of my knee and on my left knee it's on the left side inside and if I go on my tip toe it hurts really bad like a shooting pain kind of it's like a line kinda. And it's also worse when they're cold like I have to drive with the heat on them even when it's 80 degrees outside.

Dental Health :: Difference Between Invisalign And Normal Braces?

I’m going to get invisible invisalign braces as soon as I complete my high school. I’m really excited and eagerly waiting for the appointment.. My mom is compelling me to go for metal braces as she thinks they are better than the invisalign invisible braces. I prefer invisalign braces because I don’t want others to notice my braces. I think both the braces works same. Can anyone tell me the difference between invisalign braces and normal braces?
