My son is 18 days old, and today I noticed a blister on the very right tip of his penis! What in the wold is it from? It just appeared!

Congrats on your babe & for leaving him intact!

 

There were a few times I thought maybe my ds2 had a blister or something roundish, clear skin like.  I left it alone.  After a while I realized that it was just the way his skin was, like the skin down there near the tip is like that?  I can't explain this very well.  

 

Does he have any other symptoms?  How is he during diaper changes or when you potty him (if you're doing EC)?  

 

If he was born via c-section, has had abx., you've had them w/o doing work to counteract the abx, there is a history of yeast infections in you or your partner, allergies, asthma or other gut related issues, you may want to use infant probiotics on him (not adult ones - an infant until age 5-7 yo has different flora from adults), both internally & possibly on his skin.  If his doctor is foreskin knowledgable then you may want to check w/ him/her.  Also, Marilyn Milos is an RN & she started NOCIRC & she may be able to help w/ this.  You can find her at the NOCIRC.org website.

 

Best wishes,

Sus
