Thanks for the tips and info. I did take DS to the doc just to make sure he did not have any thing wrong with his bladder or kidneys. The ped was a new guy I'd never met and I was nervous because I didn't know what to expect from this guy. Well, he was great.
The first thing he asked when he walked in the room was,"Is your son circumsized?" I thought Oh great here it comes! I told him no and he just nodded. He said that at his age it is not uncommon to have an irritated penis because little boys play so much down there. He said it's more common with intact boys because "stuff" can get under there and irritate the area. (Not sure what I think about that but it does make sense)
Anyway, he stressed the importance of never retracting the foreskin, which I told him I don't. His recommendation was sitz baths with 2-3 tablespoons of baking soda and some neosporin until the redness goes away. Said if it ever happened again to just repeat the same treatment.
I'm so glad the doctors I see are intact friendly!
My dad on the other hand said, "see you should've had him circ'd." I replied by saying," Yeah, and the next time he gets an ear infection we're gonna have part of his ear amputated!"
