Yes I have had someone directly call me an abusive mother even knowing it was medically necessary.

I have never heard of this condition. What is it called? Why does it make the foreskin swell, but not the urethra? Was there ever a culture swab done to see if any bacteria or yeast were growing? Not challenging you, just want to learn more.
