Hi folks, I have been diagnosed with SLE for 4 years now and have severe organ involvement, heart/lungs. Looking back I think I have had this all of my life. My daughter who has recently turned 4 has a sore and swollen vagina, she can be up 3/4 times a night crying in pain and this has been this case for nearly 2 years now. The pediatrician diagnosed her with vaginitis and told her to apply steroid cream and canesten (to no avail), still waking most nights, the only thing that seems to give her a relief is a tepid bath and this is extremely tiring for me her luppy mum. Just wondering is it possible that this diagnoses is correct? the G.P asked about about autoimmune when her looked at her and agreed that her vulva and labia are inflamed but meds are not working, feeling lost and want to help my wee girl
