My ds is 15 months and intact. Yesterday I came home from work and he seemed to have a red tip and it almost seems like it has a small cut line. He has been playing with it more often and since it is warm we sometimes leave the diaper off. Could it be that he pulled too hard on it? I put some bacitracin on it, but it hasnt done much. He is peeing fine and doesnt seem to bother him so I have no intention on taking him to the dr. The rest of the penis looks normal. It doesnt look like it is seperating, but what do I know about baby penises?? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent"> Right now he is asleep no diaper to see if the redness subsides. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.

Bumping for you - maybe somebody will know.<br>
I've never seen a split or cut like that but it does sound like maybe he just pulled on it too hard or maybe accidentally scratched himself. Is he still feeling and urinating okay?

My son can stretch his penis into impossible shapes! If he is peeing without complaint I wouldn't worry. I took my boy in for redness and irritation once, and the doctor told me that if there is something wrong, your boy will let you know! It is such a stretchy, amazing toy for them so it's hard to keep his hands off it! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent"><br><br>
I do leave the diaper off when I can for a proper "airing". That seems to keep things happy!

Just trim his finger nails, so it doesn't happen again.

Thanks, I didnt even think it couldve been his nails that did it. They seem to grow overnight those things. This morning it looked less inflamed, so I will see how it is over the weekend. THanks.
