No one knows what triggers Henoch-Schonlein purpura.  It's not contagious.  No precautions are useful.  It's rare, though: why are you concerned about preventing such a rare disease?  If you're worried about inheriting it, it isn't hereditary either.

Best.

My son was diagnosed with this when he was about 3-4 years old.  The Dr. said it was an allergic reaction to the strep virus.  He's 10 now and has never had it again.
