Treatment for vasculitis will depend on the type of vasculitis as well as the severity of the condition and which organs are affected. Typically there are two phases of treatment - first, reducing and controlling the inflammation and second, preventing new flare-ups. For both phases prescription drugs are often used.
Additionally, maintaining a healthy lifestyle may help relieve symptoms or side effects of the medications being used for treatment.
Early treatment of severe vasculitis can be important for preventing damage to organs and tissue. In severe cases surgery may be necessary to redirect blood flow.
