You're right, I finally found a non circ friendly person at my peds office- she recommended that we let ds's ear infection clear up naturally. Guess why? She's the Nurse practictioner and she's Canadian! She's also the one that told me about egg allergies and the mmr vaccine. I really like her. I will be taking my children to see her from now own.

That's crazy! Our 4yr old isn't cir'ed & a few months ago he had an infection of some kind & his foreskin is really tight so our Ped. gave me some cream to put on it, she did say if his skin does not stretch we might have to look into getting him cir'ed, the only way we will do that is if it would become too painful, thankfully he is doing great & having no problems.

That would be my guess. If the sore was on any other part of the body the doctor would treat the ailment NOT suggest amputation. Can you imagine calling in for advice on a bad blister on a child's foot from thier new shoes rubbing and being told to schedule an appointment to have a toe removed to treat the blister??
