Vasculitis: HSP or now called IgA vasculitis is a systemic disease where you need a rheumatologist to make sure about any other organs affected. Yes a fair amount of cases will resolved spontaneosly but is also true that this vasculitis can be worse in the adults, can affect for example your kidneys and if untreated properly lead to kidney failure. Rheumatologist treats vasculitis.

High/abnormal: It is high and abnormal, unfortunately is not specific, you should discuss with the physician who ordered the test about it. It is a marker of inflammation and could be elevated due to rheumatologic diseases, infections, etc; even in obesity can be elevated but what matters most is in the context that was order and for what reasons, again talk to your physician about it.
