Possible Seperation Issues/Sore/Red/Irritated/Ballooning/Normal Development,etc. - Page 3

PLEASE make this a sticky!

It is full of fabulous information and just prevented me from having to post a redundant question (since I can never manage to get the search tool to work properly). DS was forcibly retracted by a devil woman claiming to be a ped a little over a week ago - I honestly panicked today when I noticed that it was red again, and that there was a milky/cottage cheesy drainage/discharge just inside the tip of his foreskin. I feared infection - but there is no smell, no real complaints of discomfort, no trouble urinating, etc - which had me wondering about how early smegma occurs - which you answered and then some!

thank you so much for compiling all that great info - it really does need to be a sticky!!!

any chance there are any links to more on Smegma. I found this one - about the benefits of smegma

So many of us have asked now for this to be a sticky . . . mods, can you please tell us why it isn't being turned in to one? Is there a procedure or something that needs to happen to make it so? Just wondering! Thanks!

I dont know why I didnt think of it before but I am going to put some links under the various topis for smegma pearl and prepetual cyst. If you have any links to pics throw them my way please. I have one of each but would be nice to have others.

I will do it tonight once I get home.

Done.

I was wondering, is it normal for the baby/child to bleed a little when retraction happens?

It can be yes. Depending on a few factors 1)Did the boy help the retraction along a bit? 2)Where the spot was that came loose and how large a spot. Just like when you have a little split on your lip sometimes it will bleed a tiny bit while others it does not.

Is it normal for the line on the underside of the penis to be reddened?

Absolutely, completely normal. It's called the raphe and is basically the "seam" where the cleft joined in utero. Totally normal to be red, change colors with body temp, etc.
