Hi,<br>
Is 6 years old too old for separation irritation? My 6 year old has redness and swelling in the middle of his penis. I had a different child experience something similar at the age of almost 4.<br>
Thanks in advance<br>

Nope. Everybody developes on their own schedule. It can take till puberty is well underway before some boys separate.

Thanks for the reply. It looks exactly like my 4 year old's did, so I won't worry!<br>

Sometimes separation irritation never happens. My older DS who is now 8 was able to retract around 5 and he never experienced any type of irritation. My 3.5 year old did about a year ago and now balloons when he pees but still isn't retractable. Every boy is different.
