Please please help, Of course this happens during a holiday week. and i really don't want to rush to the doctor if not needed anyway. My 4 year old intact son is complaining of his penis hurting very badly. The tip of the foreskin is red, more than usual.
this started after we came back from a long day at the pool, I assumed he was just chafed or irritated by his bathing suit and from being wet all day. So, I put some lansinoh creme on it, hoping it would help. He said it did. this was Saturday night
Fast forward to today, he is really complaining. I have him in the tub right now. But he won't touch it because he says it hurts.
I dont think he has retracted himself yet, actually I am pretty positive he hasn't, because my other iintact son, 8 years old, tried to show him and he didn't/couldn't do it
Please tell me what I need to look for, what I should do, and when to call a doctor. I am scared of googling and finding the wrong info.
Thank you so much
If you are still nursing, some expressed milk may help. I suspect it was way too much chlorine for his sensitive area. Probably something soothing there - calendula lotion? Aloe? Maybe some swishes in warm water? For next time, you guys may want to take time out of the pool, bring some spring water to swish & rinse in & maybe look for a salt water pool?
