I agree with the above advice. Taking your daughter toa dermatologist for the rash might get you more action. Sometimes they are more willing to do the necessary tests and exams. They also can give you creams to rule out something like roseacea which can get worse in the sun. Some people think roseacea is a benign condition, but it can be horrible, it is an infection.
I am getting sent back to a dermatologist by an endocrinologist who doesn't believe after several docs and exams that I have true hyperpigment. So I will have to go through biopsies and all. My adrenal bloodwork is mildly low, not low enough to cause the disfigurement they believe. But they are all men. My dermatogist is cool and will treat me if the endos won't after testing. Bloodwork is not the be all end all, espeically if you have multiple health problems, they balance things out, and if your metabolism is slow, the blood looks better than it is.
Well, I hope you get your child to a better doc and I agree I would avoid the sun in any case. I really mesed myself up this weekend getting too much sun. I hope she feels better and gets a good dx soon.
