I have a 3yr old uncircumcised son, he has never had any issues being uncircumcised, we have never pulled back his forskin, just left it alone for cleaning, etc.
This morning, when he was urinating, He was spraying which has never happened before. I thought it was because he hadn't pulled his pants down all the way so I went to help him and noticed that his foreskin was ballooning. It really scared me but he didn't seem bothered by it. I called our doc and he has an appt today at 1:20 to make sure everything is ok. My son doesn't seem to be in any pain at all. He is acting normal but it's been an hour and it is still ballooned. He has peed since and the stream was normal. I've been reading online that this can be completely normal part of development or it can indicate a need to circumcision and that if this starts occurring often, he might get UTIs. I'm looking for any advise. My son has never had any problems with his penis before so we've never seen the doctor for anything penis related. I don't know how knowledgeable our doc is with the uncircumcised penis and just want to make sure we don't do anything unecessary or harmful.
