Cannot get a diagnosis, please help.

Granddaughter 6 years old.

Began with bumps on leg with severe pain in legs--attributed to chigger bites, however, even with treatment/prevention, they continue to show up about once a week with the pain.

She gets a urinary tract infection about once every 6 weeks and now a kidney infection with back pain/fever. It was also treated, doctor now claiming no infection, but a lot of blood remains in the urine per their post-treatment tests.

Can these be related? What may this mean? The doctor wants to send her now to a specialist--urologist in September. What the heck--blood in the urine and they do not see the urgency?:eek:

Can anyone shed light on this?
