IGA Nephropathy - rash???

Hi, I was diagnosed with IGA nephropathy about 6 years ago. I'm told that they don't know terribly much about the disease and that it is hereditary. I would never know that I have it - I apparently have blood and protein in my urine (though I've never seen it) and also have high blood pressure. I take an ace inhibitor to control the protein leak and reduce my blood pressure. I have also started getting a red rash on my arms and legs. My specialist tells me this is a petrichial (not sure of the spelling!) rash that is often related to the kidney disease. I am interested to know if any other iga sufferers also get the rash and whether or not it can be controlled. It is a rash that appears under the surface of the skin and fades after about 3 - 4 days. It is never raised or itchy, just looks mighty awful! Any information or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Leisa
