I am glad that I am able to make a small difference every once in awhile.
Glad your ds is doing better and thanks for letting u know.
It sounds like it isnt ballooning since that only happens while urinating. What it does sound like is that the area that is swollen was damaged a bit either by him scratching it or some other injury or possibly a bit of yeast has moved in. Since he isnt in pain I would watch it and see how things go. If it gets sore I would treat for yeast first then if that didnt work I would try some OTC cream like bacatracin.
Removing the foreskin will not stop UTI if it did then my dh and every other circed guy wouldnt get them. Like the pp said the study was done on PREMI infants not on babies born at term so the study is by its very nature flawed. UTI in a boy should be treated the exact same way as in a girl with no cutting involved of the genitals.

Pulling it back can cause tearing allowing the infection in and hurt your ds. Put the medication on the outside and let nature help with the healing.
I remember your posts vividly & I thrilled to hear all is well w/your ds.
Here are 2 links that show the foreskin in motion: show actual penises so N: http://www.noharmm.org/anatomy.htm http://www.circumstitions.com/completeman/
It could be 1 of 3 things: 1)normal separation 2)bacteria has moved in due to separation since it can leave raw areas and his age is around when many boys do start separation (though any time is also normal) 3)yeast Here is a thread that might help you figure out which it is http://www.mothering.com/discussions/showthread.php?t=764732
Nope whether to retract or not is a personal preference kind of thing. ds didnt do it until this last couple of weeks, he will be 8 yo next month.. Some prefer to do it because it helps with aim but other than that there is no medical reason to do so.
