My ANA IFA came positive with Homogeneous pattern and 1:80H, no butterfly rash but I had some itching & rashes on neck, now gone after 6 day medication?

Triamcinolone will treat many non-lupus rashes. For now don`t get worried. But get the pamphlet on Lupus from the Arthritis Foundation and keep it on hand if anything else develops. Repeating the test won`t add much information. ...Read more

Can my son has a false strep test ? He has rashes and stomachache , with 4 friends with strep

Yes, but: It depends on what & how you test.Office quick tests are reliable in the right hands but some do a backup culture plate. A poor quality sample may not acquire the material needed for the test. Strep can also come up in other places than the throat, like skin infections or a rectal irritation.

Mast cell concern, normal blood wk, but flushing, short term rashes, sensitive skin, GI issues, allergies, allergy test change from all pos. To all neg.?

See a specialist: Normal blood work taken when you are feeling relatively "normal" may not exclude all cases of mast cell disease. It may help to recheck certain labs (e.g., tryptase) within a couple hours of the start of an episode. There are also other potential causes for your symptoms, such as certain tumors, dermatographism, etc. I would see an expert in mast cell disorders and/or flushing disorders for help. ...Read more
