I'm getting ready to leave the house and ds1 (8.5 yo) brings a penis problem to my attention. He has mentioned several times over the last few days that a specific area under his foreskin is painful. Just now he found what the problem is...a little wound on the top of the glans (maybe an eighth of an inch in diameter) it is white and looks sort of like a wound that has been under a wet band-aid, a teensy bit oozy like if maybe I dabbed it with a tissue (I didn't) that it would probably leave a whitish-yellow dot. No noticible swelling, no change in how far he can/will retract, not a constant source of pain, just annoying and hurts when he pees cause urine stings it I suppose.
Any advice? I don't want to take him to the doctor if there is something that we could do to remedy the situation here at home.
It's muchly hard to describe - I flunked topology 101. Basically there's this thing you can do to keep your foreskin retracted. Thinking about it, I suppose it sort of involves tucking the 'frill' of bunched-up foreskin behind the corona in (like a pocket).
Not something I'd want to try explaining to an 8yo, though - probably just ignore this one.
I thought this is a HUGE no-no. If you keep foreskin retracted your lil one can end up with a very serious medical condition requiring a trip to ER
