My 7 year old just got out of the bath and said his penis hurts. I looked at it and the end looks slightly swollen and it has white discharge on it. I had him get back in the bath and swoosh it with warm water. He said it felt a little better and it looked like some of the discharge was gone.

I have been looking on the computer and found different words to discribe the whitish discharge. He has been spending alot of time in his bathing suit and i wonder if he also tried pulling it back and washing it with soap while in the bath tub..but my husband said my son said it has been hurting for a couple of days. I do not want to take him to the doctor because i know they will say i should have had him circumcised..what should i do?

Does it itch? Could it be yeast?

OTC monistate can be helpful if you suspect yeast It could be just separation going on though. With it a bit of soreness and smegma discharge can happen. Here is a thread you might find helpful http://www.mothering.com/discussions/showthread.php?t=764732
