I appreciate the feedback regarding what it is and that it will pass on its own. I will certainly leave it alone. I'm not asking for advice on selecting a pediatrician at this time so please leave that subject alone.
I don't think anyone here meant that you need a new pedi. We just tend to caution parents about discussing foreskin issues with their pediatrician unless the pedi is particularly informed on the development of the intact boy.
If your pedi was unfamiliar with the smegma pearl, there is quite a bit of info that he/she could benefit from having. Maybe you could take the opportunity to educate your pedi so that he/she can provide better care to all the intact patients at the office. Many pedis welcome information that parents of intact boys provide. This is b/c parents of intact boys tend to know more on the subject. Unfortunately, they don't learn this stuff in med school.
Next time you see your pedi maybe you will want to make a few printouts for him/her.
