My 6 year old son has seen a bit a blood coming out the tip of his uncircumsized penis. It has happened 3 times now spread over 2 weeks. The first time he noticed it in bed, the other times when urinating. It's not clear that it is tied to urination. It makes a couple of small dabs on a tissue.

 

He doesn't have any other signs of a urinary tract infection which is the only thing I saw when I googled.

 

Any thoughts on what it could be? I was kind of waiting to see if it happened again but now need to take him to a doctor. And I'm nervous because we don't have a regular doctor. So I won't know if they will want to retract him..

 

And thoughts appreciated.

It could be that he is going to the normal retraction process which can have bleeding involved. Here is a thread you might find helpful http://www.mothering.com/discussions/showthread.php?t=764732

Possibly he injured it slightly while playing with it.

 

You don't need to see the Dr to check for a UTI, you just need to send a urine sample to a lab.  I'm not sure how to arrange that with out a regular Dr though.

Thanks you all. Eepster, that's what I'm thinking--he may be trying to retract it and cause the bleeding. It happened again today though so I'm going to get it checked out.

Be sure to not let the Dr. push the skin back at all. You really dont want to risk him causing further injury at this point.
