my ds has had dry diapers all day, poop is normal. He was whimpering and the end of his penis was red and swollen when i changed him into a night time diaper (he was also either erect or really needs to pee). I know he peed through his diaper and clothes at preschool yesterday and they changed him. -- this boy does not like the potty, working on that! I have it written down on his wipes/diaper not to retract and only wipe what is seen, like a finger but maybe they didn't listen? I feel horrible right now and really hope he's better tomorrow. Any suggestions? How long is too long not to pee? His doctor is nice and all but really does not know about intact boys... so I'm nervous if I take him to the doctor/urgent care/er whatever that they will make it worse... Help?

If he is still dry in the morning and things look the same/worse I would make an appt. with his ped. At that appt. I would have them swab the very tip of his penis and see if there is any bacteria or yeast present then treat accordingly. Make sure though that no one tries to retract him at all since there is something going on there it could cause it to spread.
