I have three intact sons. This is the first time that I have been a bit alarmed at diaper changing time, and DON'T want to go to a doctor if it can be avoided.
My son is 18 mths old, and his penis is red and swollen. The swollen part is coming from the middle of his penis, the left side. I was feeling and looking and he was visibly upset and did not want me to touch him. We have had a stomach bug and he did have a diaper rash from using the bathroom so much. He had been crying and saying "ow" but I thought it was from a tummy ache or needing to go to the bathroom. It definitely is internal (not a skin infection).
Anyone have advice for how to treat this without going to a doctor? He already is taking vit c and probiotics each day. In comparison with my other sons, his skin is looser with the head of his penis being visible at times when he is exploring....is it possible something has gotten in there and caused an infection...if so how to treat????
