Non-thrombocytopenic purpura

A blend of various purpura types, characterized by the presence of purpura (purple or red spots on the skin), colic, vomiting, and diarrhea. It may also be accompanied by symptoms like urticaria (hives), edema (swelling), and swollen joints. This group encompasses purpura simplex, rheumatic purpura, and Schonlein’s purpura. The condition can be triggered by factors such as exposure to harmful substances or sensitivities to certain foods, and it can often be resolved by eliminating the offending item from the diet. It is also known as Henoch-Schönlein syndrome, Henoch’s purpura, anaphylactoid purpura, and hemorrhagic capillary toxicosis.
