When I changed my son this morning (6 months) I noticed on the side of his penis, a cut. It is horizontal (meaning it looks like it would go around (if it were that big). Honestly it looks like one of the folds of his foreskin split--- like a spilt lip. I am guessing when getting changed he must have grabbed himself and his fingernail got it. I can't think of any other logical explanation. What should I do for it. It is red, but it doesn't seem to bother DS. I called the pedi and got the nurse she said to keep an eye on it keep it dry (right!) and put triple antibiotic ointment on it. Is this right? HELP! I dont' want it to get infected.
