Baby with lupus?

Hello everybody. Thank you for this great forum.

I have a simple question. My daughter started to show a very intense rash with blisters all over her arms. This has been gong on since she was 8 month old. She is know 14 months. The doctor says that she thinks by her exams that my daughter has lupus. I have read all over the web that lupus in babys is calles neonatal lupus and that it starts very early in the first moth or two, and that it clears up at the 6 month. This made me think that she does not have neaonatal lupus, but sistemic lupus. Is it possible for my daughter to develop sistemis lupus at the age og 8 months?

Thank you

She had a antinuclear antibody test done and the result came back negative. Does this mean she does not have lupus? The test was done when the first blisters appeared. When she was 8 months old

The neg. ANA can not definitely rule out lupus, but it would certainly ease my mind.  There are 11 criteria for systemic lupus.  There is also something called dicoid lupus that mainly affects the skin.  Lupus usually causes extreme fatigue and joint pain.  Does she act like she is in a lot of pain?

I can only express my opinion.  I would lean toward an allergy.  Maybe her formula, laundry soap, etc.  Did her dr. think ya'll could rule out an allergy?
