I have a 21 month old (intact) son who seems to be having some pain/sensitivity with his penis today. He cried after urinating when he woke from his nap (not during urination, but after) but everything looked okay then. A couple hours later I noticed some white-ish (thick, creamy) on his diaper. I know this can be normal, but I've never seen it on my son before. During his bath I looked at his penis and thought it seemed a bit swollen and it is definitely sensitive to the touch. He would not let me near it to even look more closely. We let him go diaperless for a few hours and his penis is most certainly swollen and he does not want to sit down. I've put his diaper back on (he asked for one) but it still seems sensitive. I will call the ped in the morning, but want to know if there is anything I can do this evening to make him more comfortable? Any ideas what is going on here? I'm concerned because my DH (also intact) has ongoing problems with his foreskin and penis, likely from adhesions from forced retractions as a child- but we are not sure. I am praying that our son does not have the same problems- he has never been retracted, never. If I take him to the ped tomorrow, what can I expect? Obviously I will not let her retract him to "look"- but she might try even thought she never has before.
The only thing I can think that *might* have caused this is putting him back in cloth diapers after a week in 'sposies while we were on vacation. Possible? I don't know which diaper is less irritating to him right now.
Any advice appreciated! Thanks!
