My son woke up with one side of his penis badly swollen yesterday ( he is intact). He begged me to take him to the doctor because it hurt him. He is 3. I wish i has waited but it was so red and swollen I didn't know better.
OK so we go and the doc says its infected. he immediately starts to pull the foreskin back. luckily not much but still did. i was so upset and had never hear of this kind thing so i went with it. He said i had to clean it and put cream for a yeast infection and give him antibiotics.
i came home feeling so uneasy. then i look around and find out about separation trauma and that it would have just gone away! i feel sick to my stomach.
so today- he wakes up with yellow pussy smelling drainage! i take him back and the doctor says we have to clean it despite my arguments. when he does a ton of yellow smell goo comes out. is it an infection? was i wrong? did the doctor cause it?
i found a website of intact friendly doctor BUT when i called them they all said "yes sometimes with infection you have to pull it back!"
i will keep giving him the oral antibiotic but i don't know what else to do/think
