My son is intact and until the day before yesterday there haven't been any problems. This might not even be related to him being intact but I wanted some advice because I am still learning about having an intact son.
The first thing that happened is the night before last night he peed in his bed. He came and told me about it and I figured it was a pee dream so I told him not to worry about it.
Then yesterday he peed in his pants. He told me he tried to make it to the bathroom but he didn't. I thought perhaps he just was too involved in what he was doing but at this point I started to get concerned. However, he has no fever and wasn't complaining of any pain or urge to urinate so I put it on the back burner.
This morning he made it to the bathroom but peed all over his pants and floor.
I asked him if it hurts when he pees (he is five) and he said no, it hurts when he squeezes it. So, I told him not to squeeze it.
I took a look at it this morning and the tip of it is red, not an angry red but irritated looking. There is no pus or anything like that.
So, I had him soak in an epsom salt bath just out of instinct.
I told him the next time he goes to the bathroom to call me so I can come in and see what is happening.
Does this sound like an UTI to you? I know they are uncommon in boys but can cause young kids to pee on themselves - but don't they usually come with other symptoms?
Or do you think anything else might be going on?
