<p>Ok, my son is 2 1/2-ish and he's been saying his pee-pee hurts.  I don't see anything when I look at it, he is uncircumsized, but I didn't think I had to really do anything special due to that.  I feel very weird posting this, but I don't have any other mom friends who didn't circ.  What do I do?  Should I take him to the Dr?  Is this something I can figure out?  I this appropriate to be posting even?</p>

We get posts like this all the time so it is fine.<br><br>
It sounds like he may be going through some separation pain. Here is a <a class="bbcode_url" href="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/showthread.php?t=764732">thread</a> that you may find helpful in determining what might be going on.

<p>The possible reasons for it hurting are long.  Since you don't see anything and this the only symptom you mention; I lean towards either separation leaving small areas that sting when he pees, or erections.  Some times little boys will say "ow" to describe the unfamiliar sensation of an erection.</p>

<br><br><p>This is what I thought, only I would think if it was erection, it would mainly be first thing in the morning?  And when I had him show me, I didn't see anything, but when I tried to see if the skin moved (not retracting it of course) he moved away and said that was where it hurt.  It's not when he pees, but I guess if it is separation, pee could still be in there?  Should I just leave it alone?  What should I tell him when he says it hurts?</p>

<br><br><p>What do you say when he bumps his knee?  Try putting him in a bath (no soap, just plain water or a little baking soda.)  Or, put a little diaper cream on it (even if he's out of diapers you can still use it, DS still sometimes wants some for his bottom and he's used the potty for 2 years now.) </p>
