I'm the mama of 2 intact boys.
Last year, my first son had an infection in his penis.. Near the base and underneath was almost bruised looking. The doctor we dealt with was very nice and said that it wasnt due to him being intact - that both intact and cut men can get this infection. (I cant remember the name of it .. hydro something?) Anyways.. They gave him antibiotics and it went away. My son is now almost 2.. and yesterday I noticed he was looking swollen and slightly bruised again. I left it and he started to tell me that it was sore and that it hurt. (Its not sore when he urinates) I took him to the emerg today. The doctor there picked his penis up gently and very gently tried to retract the foreskin - he showed no discomfort at all so I knew that she wasn't using too much force. When she did this a bunch of light green colored puss came out. She did a swab and told me that he might need to be circumcised because she wasn't able to retract the foreskin easily.. I then told her that I knew the foreskin wasn't always retractable in infants/toddlers and that I knew that wasn't a reason for circumcision, that I didn't believe it was a necessary procedure and that the doctor that we had seen previously for the same reason never once mentioned circumcision. I need any information you might have for me about this situation. We are going to go see a urologist and see what he has to say. Sorry this is so long.. thank you for reading if you made it this far!
