Yesterday ds went swimming and did not have a bath afterward. We went camping last night, so he was dirty also, but I don't think his penis was dirty. Well, his hands were dirty and he touched his penis during diaper changes. He has been wearing a diaper more than usual the past two days as well. I have been doing a lot of naked time with him this summer.
I noticed that his foreskin was red at the tip last night and there was a little of what looked like smegma on the outside of his penis. This morning the foreskin looked more swollen and red and there was white discharge coming out. I gently pulled his foreskin back a bit and it easily moved back more than I've ever seen it go. I was really careful not to push it back more than I've seen him move it. Is it separating? Is this a yeast infection? Do I need to call the doctor? I feel guilty for not bathing him after the pool, but it seemed silly to bathe him before camping.
Any advice is appreciated! Thanks.
Thanks for your replies. It's hard to tell what is causing it, but it looks better already. His foreskin is still pink on the end, but it doesn't look swollen now. He's had one bath earlier today. I'll put baking soda in next time.
I checked out the other thread and I think his ped thought he had a preputial cyst. She didn't retract his foreskin, but felt a lump through it. Dh and I think it was just the shape of his glans she was feeling, but I suppose if it was a cyst, it could be causing the discharge. Who knows? At least I know we can give it 48 hours and hopefully it will be gone and we won't have to do anything.
