Trace of Blood in the Urine

For the last 5 tests that my doctor has run, the result has shown a Trace of Blood in the Urine.  Everything else is normal.  What causes this trace?  I have a history of Kidney and bladder infections.  They did find a spot on my liver when I was a child that had encapsulated itself.

Hi,
I don’t think you need to be much worried about the same as some traces of blood in urine are quite common and nothing much to worry. They can happen due to the recurrent urinary tract infections. You shouldn’t go for any further tests & investigations. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.

I haven't had any recent bladder infections. I have been broken out all over my body in strange rashes that the dermatologist said were 4 completely different rashes. They put me on two really heavy duty antibiotics because I got MRSA and I broke out from them. One of my doctors said that I may have Stevens Johnson's Syndrome. Could any of this cause the blood in the urine?

Hi,
I don’t think you have got steven johnson syndrome as it’s a medical emergency in which the epidermis separates from the dermis and this can be life threatening. It can occur following infections or use of certain drugs. I don’t think the antibiotics could have caused it either. I’ll suggest getting a complete blood count as a low platelet count can cause both skin rashes and traces of blood in urine. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
