In August I once retracted my son's foreskin so far that I could see his glans. During diaper changes I had been pulling my son's foreskin tight so I could wipe the tip, but this time all of a sudden the foreskin slid back and I keep going -- until my poor baby said "mama, hurt!" I felt awful, but since there was no blood and apparently no further effects I thought no more about it. But now I've noticed that his foreskin has started to balloon when he pees (it never did this before) and I've tried to see if the foreskin is still loose, but it's closed completely. I've talked to our pediatrician, and she wants me to use a steroid cream and see a urologist. But I don't want any unnecessary medical intervention. I have no idea what's normal and what I should do -- please help!
