Yesterday morning DS foreskin started to look red and swollen. It got progressively worse during the day and by the afternoon I could tell it hurt him. He cried when I wiped him, grabbed at his diaper and was very clingy (not like him at all) He went on the potty a little and it didn't seem to hurt him to pee, because he didn't wince in pain or anything. I figured I'd take a wait and see approach, but this AM it was HUGE and angry and red. the tip part is swollen too. It looks horrible and he's definitely in pain. I'm making an appt with the pedi when they open this AM but I'm worried about how they are going to examine him and what I need to know or do. Any ideas on what this is? DH is circ'd so he didn't have any suggestions. Please help. I'm worried and I don't know enough to speak strongly to the pedi when we go. I don't know how knowledgable our pedi is on uncirc'd children because 95% of parents circ here.
