He let me look, I see nothing out of the ordinary. He's been grabbing himself a lot more lately, just holding himself.

I told him I'd put in a call to his doctor on Monday morning, and until then he could have warm/cool packs.

He is circed. I just don't know what to do/look for!!

One of my nephews had a torsioned testicle way back when he was still an infant. Took some doing to figure out why he was crying so much of the time.


See if he can differentiate between those and his penis? Might narrow things down for the doc when you get there.

Put some coconut oil or olive oil on it. Boys get irritated sometimes just like girls do around/between the labia. It is probably just that simple. ?

Don't let him sit in the tub long. And for sure don't use bubble baths. Soap only at the end of the bath, not while he is playing in the tub.
It's better just to shower mostly.

Those are good points Gitti!

DD's had some occasional pain in her vulva, with no signs or symptoms of anything, not even redness. Reminding her to rinse well in the shower, no soapy baths, and some sort of protective oil seem to help.

Thanks! He's already a 'shower boy' since I cut out the bubbles about 2 years ago. He decided it's much more fun to get "rain clean".

And the next time he says it hurts, I will try one of the oils for irritation.
