My 14 month old has a swollen red penis and all during the night he was up and crying. It hurts him when he urinates and I discovered a small amount of yellowish discharge in his diaper. We have been dosing him with a homeopathic medicine that seems to be helping, but I would like to know if anyone else has experienced this before. My older son who is also uncircumsized has never had a problem like this. My poor baby :(

Neither of my sons have had any issues.  I'm sorry the two of you are going through this.  I'm glad to hear the homeopatics are working.


Does he take probiotics or eat cultured/fermented foods?  If not, they may help get his flora in shape to keep these kinds of things from recurring.  Also, if he takes baths, using just water instead of water & soap may help as well.


I hope he continues to feel better.



Baby the babies while they're babies so they don't need babying for a lifetime.

It is possible that he is having separation issues. While not common it does happen from time to time. This thread http://www.mothering.com/discussions/showthread.php?t=764732 talks about separation issues along with possible infections.

The main indicator is if the pain lasts for more than 48 hours it is probably an infection while separation issues clear up on their own within that time frame. I hope he gets better soon.
