Irritated penis.

The past 2 days DS's penis has been red and a lil irritated. Now the head of it is EXTREMELY red. Now he cries when he has a lil pee in his diaper and says his penis hurts. (note he doesn't cry when he pees just when the diaper is on). Do you think it could be a fleece irritation or maybe his pee diaper has been on too long (was a night time one). I've been using FBs and Hugga bunz and clean his penis with water w/ a dab of tto. (think its the tto?) Any advice, my poor lil man !

Re: Irritated penis.

I am not 100% sure but it might be the TTO. I have heard that you should not put that on direct skin. Now again I am not positive about that.

I would try giving him a bath and seeing if it gets better after the bath and then see how it goes from there. If it gets worse I would maybe take him to the Dr.

I hope your little man feels better soon though.

Re: Irritated penis.

maybe that's it. I just made a bowl of water with a couple of drops and soaked some paper towels in it. I thought it would be ok, since normally a recipe is soap, oil, water, lavender or tto. oi Ill try a bath and see if that will sooth him.

ETA:

I also started putting tto in the wash with the dipes cus it seems to help with the repelling, maybe I should rewash without it?

Re: Irritated penis.

Same thing happened to my oldest a few times. I needed to strip the dipes when it happened and then he was fine for a few months. THen I would strip them again.

Re: Irritated penis.

2 causes come to mind:

1~ you need to size up

2~ you need to strip them

When my ds diapers got tight we had that problem....and when i had some build up in our aios i had it....

Re: Irritated penis.

My guess is that it's the TTO. The second I put TTO on my DS (in a mix of water and baby soap..so maybe 3-5 drops of TTO in the whole bottle).. his buns turn bright red!! I think the TTO isn't very good for sensitive skin!!

Re: Irritated penis.

It could be a sensitivity to whatever inner he is wearing. Have you introduced any new dipes lately? My DS has had a small red sore on the tip of his penis, and I'm about 99% sure it's b/c he's allergic/sensitive to the suedecloth in our new BG AIOs.
