I'd ask about Lichen Sclerosis on the vagina issue.

I'd ask for an ANA test to see what that shows.

I itch a lot too...it sucks.

Re: blood results with my symptoms please help

Your labs look concerning only for a mild infection, with the elevated WBC and neutrophils. The urine abnormalities suggest it was a "dirty catch" - meaning, that it's contaminated with skin/epithelial lining cells. This is pretty common. When those are present, the bacteria don't mean anything. You could still have a UTI, but that urine sample is hard to interpret given it was contaminated.

I agree with kselibrary - an ANA will help point to or point away from an autoimmune cause (although a negative ANA doesn't mean there's not something autoimmune going on). The rashes are the main thing that I would think could point to something autoimmune. I hope you feel better!!!
