Does sle cause your vaginal area and/or bladder to itch (outside & in) & discomfort? No uti, no bladder infection, no yeast infection, no burning etc

Does sle cause your vaginal area and/or bladder to itch (outside & in) & discomfort? No uti, no bladder infection, no yeast infection, no burning etc

Possibly: Auto-immune conditions cause reactions in areas of the body. In the many sle patients for whom we have cared this has never previously arisen, but if you excluded other possibilities this must be considered. The other question is, what medications are you taking, and are you wearing underpants or using soap or deodorant, etc. To which you may be having an allergic or irritative reaction? ...Read more

On second antibiotic for UTI. Keflex and now Cipro. Still have symptoms. I am on plaquenil and methotrexate for SLE. Should I temporarily stop meds?

On second antibiotic for UTI. Keflex and now Cipro. Still have symptoms. I am on plaquenil and methotrexate for SLE. Should I temporarily stop meds?

Check with doc first: The bacteria that cause UTI often are resistant to many antibiotics. It is possible but unusual for a UTI to resist both cephalexin (Keflex) and ciprofloxacin, so maybe UTI, maybe not. A vaginal yeast infection triggered by the antibiotics could cause UTI-like symptoms. Don't stop treatment yet, but speak with the doctor who prescribed it about next steps. ...Read more

No + lupus labs. Have all symptoms. What else could it be. No emotional dr's say. Talking w/all my ologists dr's. No bladder UTI but gross hematuri?

Cannot diagnose: Without seeing you and having your records, history and exam it is impossible to comment. Suggest that the best course of action would be to find a good general internist and let them monitor your evaluation. Have no idea what symptoms you may be referring to. Gross hematuria suggests acute infection, tuberculosis or malignancy. Go and get seen, good luck. ...Read more

Common illness: When you have a chronic disease, the question of whether it's an ordinary infection or a problem with your medication or your illness is troubling. Call your doctor and let her know you are worse, with new symptoms and to follow up on pending tests. Meanwhile, keep up with frequent water, soup, some crackers and rice to help with hydration. ...Read more
