Kids Child with rash, joints, and abdominal complaint

A 9-year-old boy is brought to your office by his mother after the boy developed a rash yesterday. According to the mother, the boy has been complaining of knee, elbow and abdominal pain for the last 2 days. Review of his recent history reveals that he was last in your office 2 weeks ago, when you diagnosed a viral URI. The mother has tried oral analgesics, which have not helped.
On physical exam, the boy is alert and oriented, seated comfortably on the table. His heart and lung exam are normal. His abdomen is tender to palpation, but no masses are found. He has a red macular rash on his legs and gluteal region.

What is the most likely diagnosis?
A. Allergic reaction to analgesics
B. Henoch-Schonlein Purpura
C. Minimal Change Disease
D. Infectious mononucleosis
E. Infectious vasculitis
