I noticed tonight after the bath that my 3 year olds foreskin was red. He was slightly erect at the time (I have no idea why, it just happens sometimes after his bath) and I noticed quite a bit of it was red. When he stopped being erect, I noticed the foreskin that was (now hanging) was slightly swollen as well. I asked him if it hurt at all, he said no but he didn't want me to touch it because he said it would hurt if I did.

I thought there was a sticky somewhere about waiting 48 hours and it usually goes away. But Ive looked and cant find it.

Some reassurance would be nice, since this hasn't happened before - my 6 year old is cut (sadly).

Thank you in advance.

Both my son's have had this happen I usually just clean it well and put a little diaper ointment on it or vaseline and it clears up over night. I try to remind them to make sure to pull back there skin when they pee and keep it clean by washing their hands before and after they go to the bathroom. I hope that helps, good luck
