Recurring infections - Page 2

Actually the steroid cream should only be used on a boy in puberty or older. Using it on younger children can result in issues. Like having a foreskin that retracts while using it then it tightens back down after you stop because his body just isnt ready to retract yet.

A pediatric urologist would definitely be preferable to a surgeon since all they know about is cutting and your ds in no way needs to be cut on.

I would watch and make sure that the urologist does not retract him and if he starts talking about some boys just need circ then you know you have the wrong urologist because no boy needs circ unless he has cancer, frostbite or gangrene none of which applies to your ds.

If he's not in any acute pain and is passing urine with no difficulty or complaint, I'd stay away from doctors, but my personal experiences have led me to choose medical care only when in clear emergency and I'll fully disclose that here as it shapes my opinion to wait and see.

Are you seeing any change with the anti-fungal cream?

Hi, I just thought I would post an update. I got a natural skin healing cream which was recommended to me and gave pain relief as needed and it wasn't long before he was not complaining anymore. It turns out my DH had similar problems despite being circed.

 

Thankyou very much for the advice!

I think this is worth repeating. So many people think circumcision will prevent every problem. It doesn't. Circumcised men get the same exact problems.

 

Thanks for sharing this and I'm so happy your little boy is feeling better!
