Re: Quick Help- Swollen Penis

Sounds like balanitis...you shouldn't need antibiotics. My son has this at 12 months, a bright red swollen like a little balloon penis. We did frequent soaks in baths (upon his pedi's advice) with lavender essential oil in the water. He was fine within a couple of days.

So sorry for you little guy
