Hi

What other tests were done?

I would suggest that she be referred to an infectious disease specialist. Autoimmune diseases like arthritis and SLE may present with these. However, infections like parvovirus, adenovirus, and EBV may also present with similar symptoms. It may be possible to have blood tests done along this line. These viruses may present with rash and joint pains. Also, if synovial fluid  aspiration may be done to help determine the cause of the condition.
