Hi, our 3 year old son has irritation on the backside of his penis. He told my husband last night that it hurt when he peed in the potty & there is irritation & some blood when he wiped it. Today, there isn't any blood, but it does appear irritated, similar to diaper rash. He again said it hurt when he went to the bathroom & actually cried:(. I do not see any irritation anywhere else other than the backside of the penis. What could this be & what should we do to clear it up & stop the pain? Any advice appreciated!

I also wanted to report that he only urinates a tiny amount & then hops off the toilet saying "it hurts, it hurts!". He has said a few times this morning that he "doesn't want to pee pee". He even had a big accident just a bit ago from holding it back. I have read that sometimes it's painful when the glans separate from the forskin. He doesn't have any other symptoms of a UTI (no fever, doesn't feel sick at all & is playing normally). I really don't want to take him to the doctor just yet & wanted to get others input. Thanks!

Because there is blood present I would recommend taking him to a qualified healthcare practitioner.  There could be a number of reasons why this is happening.  Best to look into it immediately, get to the root cause, and address appropriately.

 

Take care,

Nicole

It could be yeast and it could also be separation either one you could see some bleeding. I would have him pee in the bath or in a cup and see it that helps with the pain. Also here is a thread that you might find helpful http://www.mothering.com/discussions/showthread.php?t=764732

Thank you for your replies! I spoke with our ped this afternoon & he said it sounded like a forskin infection & recommended we put Neosporin on the infected area & to come in tomorrow if he is still experiencing pain. Yeast was mentioned by him as well.

 

Thank you again for the advice & the thread & I will update again in a day or two!

Instead of using neo I would recommend using bacatracin since neo can be irritating to some when used on the genitals.

Just wanted to post an update. Our son went to the ped yesterday afternoon & was diagnosed with a bacterial infection on his foreskin. He prescribed an oral antibiotic which we started last night. Our son is already feeling a little better & says it only hurts a little bit when he urinates.

 

Thank y'all for the advice!
