My seventeen month old is intact and has never been retracted. Today he started complaining of pain in his penis and I noticed that one side is very red and swollen. It is also hot to the touch and very painful. He hasn't been able to/ or is unwilling to pee for several hours (we do EC and he freaks at sitting on the potty and hasn't had any wet pants). I'm not sure what to do but my knee jerk reaction is to take him to the doctor. However, I am afraid to take him to the doctor for fear they will insist on retracting him. We are new to the area we live and don't do well child visits so I don't know any intact knowledgeable drs in the area.
Is there any thing we can do at home to help him? We have tried warm baths with epsom salts. It just continues to swell and get more sore.
