Sorry for starting another thread! I mentioned in my other thread that my son has been diagnosed with balanitis, and the doc wanted me to give him a/b for this. I am not comfortable with that. It could be yeast, not bacterial, and it could just as easily have been a trapped pocket of smegma. So, when I helped to massage some of the blockage out (there are two small breaks in the adhesions of the foreskin), I smelled the discharge and it didn't smell like pus (nasty infection smelling), and it didn't smell like yeast, it had little smell, not quite musty as I have been told that smegma smells, though it did smell a bit like a dirty belly button can smell, or at least two little dried/hardened peices that came out smelled this way. So I'm thinking the smegma wasn't able to drain because he had some smegma harden in the very small space for drainage in the adhesions? I'm putting virgin coconut oil on it now, and not filling the script, but just wondering if you knowledgable ladies think it's possible he had a pocket of smegma backed up?
