Help boys penis question
 
Yesterday my son had a tiny sore or raw part that was on the head of his penis. It was very small a little bigger than a pin prick. Today it's bigger and now kind of spreading to the opening where the urin comes out. What do I do? Do I put something on it? Just try to keep it dry? It doesn't bother him too much, or alteast I can't tell if it is because he is getting his molars so it's hard to tell which one is bothering him.

I would put some good quality diaper cream on it after giving him a bath and letting him run around nekid :giggle: for a while. That way it gets clean, dries out a bit, and then is covered in good soothing stuff :thumbsup: And hey, what little one doesn't love to be naked!! Also, if it gets a LOT worse I would take him to the pedi just to get it checked out. :hugs:

My DS has a mastocytoma on his penis and sometimes he gets raw parts on the head. (not trying to scare you, it's totally benign and likely NOT what your DS has...) But we keep it good and coated in vaseline to reduce the friction and let him go nudie often to keep the heat off until the raw part heals. Good luck, I know it's scary when our babies have owies and we can't figure it out...

My 3 y/o DS gets infections under his foreskin. He is circumcised but I think he had a botched job :( I'd put some triple antibiotic ointment on it and let him be nude to air it out.

Have you figured out what's causing it so you can prevent it from getting worse?

Oh no that's not good. I dont think it has anthing to do with his circumcisiong because it's on the tip of his penis. But I will be putting stuff on it anyways. Thanks

No I don't I didn't notice it until after I came back from my dentist appointment yesterday. It kind of looked like he scrated himself, but then this morning it looked like it got bigger.

Ugg I wasn't thinking about it. Could the claw from the snappi go through the diaper? I don't remember using one yesterday though. I'm taking him in because it looks like it's getting bigger. I would just rather be save than sorry when it comes to my guys manhood :) I wasn't going to but then after talking to my husband on the phone he thinks that's what I should do. Urgent care here we come.
