How is HSP treated?

There is no specific treatment for HSP. Medicines can help you feel better and treat an infection that may have triggered HSP. Fortunately, HSP usually gets better without any treatment. Anti-inflammatory medicines, such as ibuprofen (some brand names: Advil, Motrin) or naproxen (brand name: Aleve), can help the pain in your joints. Sometimes medicines like prednisone can help people who have severe joint and stomach pain.
