How's your boy doing today?

I am so incensed I don't know what to do. I told him in no uncertain terms that there was no way in hell I would consider doing that for a UTI that can be treated with antibiotics. He said that boys shouldn't get UTIs at all, and the only reason he got it is because he is...

I will keep up the baths, and have had some essential oils recommended to try in his bath and as a wash, as well as a natural antiseptic cream. These things will be ok won't they? An infection would have had a nauseating rotting smell to it, otherwise it's smegma discharging which occurs primarily when a boy's...
I have bumped up our soreness thread so that you can give it a read, you might find some ideas in there. Quote: Originally Posted by Guadalupe his first infection I didn't even know what the problem was. I thought something terrible had happened. He was screaming and would collapse when he tried to walk and would kind of climb up me like he was trying to get away from the lower half of his body. I took him to the Dr and he didn't retract his foreskin,...

I can't get the link until I am home but sometimes intact boys go through periods...

One one occasion he was in too much pain to walk, and on another occasion he had a thick pussy discharge. He was complaining of pain a few weeks ago but with no discharge, just a slight redness. I took him to the Dr and he did a swab and put him on oral and topical antibiotics again. The swab showed no...
Quote: Originally Posted by So-Called Will it stop because of legislation? Litigation? Decreasing popularity? Will it go out with a whimper or a bang? When will we reach the tipping point (and what is that tipping point) where circumcising is no longer considered normal and OK? I think there are a number of ways it could play out, but that it will happen. I would love to hear everyone's ideas on what they think is the most likely scenario. It...
Great reply send it.

It changes the calculus quite a...
