My almost 3 year old, intact boy is having an issue.  This morning at his first change he was fine, by the afternoon he was saying "ouch" and pointing to his penis.  I looked and it was red and swollen a little.  I put him in the bath to soothe him and found what I thought was a bite from an insect or something since we spent most of the morning outside.  After his nap it was still irritated but didn't look any worse.  A few moments ago after he pee'd I noticed some green color discharge from his penis and it smelled bad.  I googled it of course it was really no help since I'm pretty sure my son doesn't have a STD.  Ideas?

Update:  After a chamomile tea bath there was more of the goop.  After that his penis looked better, not as swollen.  I put him in the bath again after a few hours with apple cider vinegar in it.  That really seemed to help!  His penis and foreskin look almost normal this morning.  I think I will continue with the ACV baths today and see how it goes.  Apparently it was yeast related, at least that's my guess since it's responding so well to the treatment.
