No: A low IGA is not causing any of your problems. Your infections could be related to the lupus or some of the therapies. People with lupus can even have IGA deficiency and again this doesn't cause any further medical problems. You can discuss this with your rheumatologist.

What infection??: "Personal infection" is a meaningless term. Most likely you're referring to a problem in the genital area, rectum, etc. But even that isn't nearly enough information to help. Post a new infection with more detail, preferably the exact problem or whatever diagnosis has been made. Don't let modesty limit what you say: we can't help without the details.
