NON CIRCING MOMS!!!!!!

Please send me to the right place....T has a really red swollen foreskin (I would take a pict if you wouldn't think me perverted) and really watery white "stuff" (I don't think it is the lubricant that is made naturally but I could be wrong) that comes out from around the glans when I sqeeze gently. He is aslo in a miserable mood. Suggestions PLEASE!!!!

My ds sometimes gets red and inflamed. I give him a bath, air it out, and put on some natural diaper area cream and it's always gone within a day or two. HTH

My cousins son did this when he was 3. He had an infection and the skin was actually growing closed. He has to have surgery. Maybe your ds is just irritated. try what the pp suggested and if it isn't better I would call your dr.

Re: NON CIRCING MOMS!!!!!!

i wouldn't let it go more than a day or so, and with the weekend coming up, you might want to think about getting him into the dr tomorrow. you know how things are on the weekends, you don't want to have to take him to the ER! try the pp suggestion and if its still having problems tomorrow, well, maybe a visit to the dr is in order. good luck, poor baby!

Re: NON CIRCING MOMS!!!!!!

I'm so sorry your little guy is going through this! My ds has had this same problem minus the white watery discharge. My family doc thought it was perhaps yeast and we treated it with OTC lotrimin cream. I did very gently pull back on his foreskin, but not forcibly and not beyond his glans. I spread the cream all around. It started looking better then it came back a couple of weeks later. I had been been putting the same cream on it every so often "just to make sure" it didn't come back. He woke up one morning and it was so red and totally swollen (it had looked fine the night before). After much research and stress, I finally just left it alone (NO more manipulating his foreskin at all or applying any kind of cream) and started putting him in sposies at night (I know, I know). I haven't had a problem since. The Mothering board's choosing not to circ forum has ALOT of information on this too. That board really informed me on many no-circ issues. Good luck!

Re: NON CIRCING MOMS!!!!!!

I have used a couple drops of lavendar oil, breastmilk, bath and air. Do you have any signs of yeast infection? Painful shooting pain in breasts, itching,etc. Or do you have a yeast infection? Do it look red and swollen from being in a hot (summer time) diaper or more like fiery raised and red?? If the later it may be yeast. Let us know what is is looking like. I just recently read that some redness can be normal.
