Hi there! I just noticed a couple of white, shiny, raised spots on my 5 mo DS's foreskin. It hasn't been manipulated, we use organic cloth diapers and change them frequently, though I did notice it while changing his first diaper of the day after he'd been in an overnighter. He isn't prone to diaper rash. I can't tell if it's just irritation, or if (as my husband, who is also intact, suggested) it's a little bubble of urine under there. Obviously I'm not about to pull it back to check! He didn't seem to experience pain or discomfort when I touched it.
Any ideas of what this could be? Should I be concerned or just watch it for a while? Our pediatrician isn't super intact-friendly or knowledgeable, so I don't want to turn to her unless I absolutely have to. And we're in Alabama, so finding another pediatrician who will also be flexible on vaccines and would also know about intact-care probably wouldn't happen. Thanks!!
Sometimes little pimple like things come up on the penis though I dont know why but they usually go away on their own without causing an issue.

If the spots are under the foreskin it is most likely to be smegma pearls. That just indicates your sons foreskin has detached in those small areas and he has a accumulation of smega, which is simply the bodies own soap caught underneath. They will go away in time. You can ignore it. Some boys seem prone to them, others never have them.
