Yesterday my DH and I noticed that the tip of DS's penis was red. Then after his bath, when we were putting on his nighttime diaper, there was a tiny bit of blood coming out. We called the doctor, and then went in today. The doc retracted his foreskin a bit and it was super red and infected (really gross) looking underneath. He said it's just a bacterial infection and gave me some oral antibiotic to give DS for 10 days. Is there anything else I can/should do for him? I read in the Mothering article "Protect Your Uncircumcised Son" that we should use an antibacterial ointment and acidopholus -- how much of the latter and in what form? And what kind of ointment?
Thank you for your help!
