My 3yo son is saying that his penis hurts. Yesterday he was whining/crying that his penis hurt. He pointed out where. It is the same place as another poster said. On the underside where his scrotum and penis connects. There is nothing there at all. No redness or anything. I asked him some questions and he just says yes it hurts. I decided to not bring it up again and see if he did on his own. He is at the age where if you ask if something hurts he will say yes and you are not sure if it does. Today he was sitting on the couch and he was crying. More of like a whine cry. I asked what was wrong and he said his penis hurt and he pointed at the same spot. So now I know it is bothering him but I have no idea why. What could be there that would irritate him? If it continues, I will set up an appt but I would rather not if we can help it. Thanks.
Sorry to hear your ds is in pain. I use lanolin frequently for minor irritations, even when it's not red or looking like there's something there. Don't know that I'd recommend it on the foreksin, but where you're saying, I think I would do it if my ds let me.
It could be that the foreskin is separating from the head of the penis. Maybe you could try some extended bath time, just letting him play in the water a bit. Can you ask him to pull back his foreskin so you could see? And maybe he could do that while he's in the water. If he's doing it himself, he will know when to stop.

Not sure on a boy, but I remember when I had a UTI 20 years ago it hurt right before the urine would come out, so at the end of my urethra.
Are you thinking he's telling you it hurts on the outside but it really hurts on the inside? If that's the case, I'd look up some anatomy pictures to try to see where everything is to know. Does he have any other symptoms? If so, what are they?
