Dont retract his foreskin to clean it. There is no need too. You can also do a baking soda bath every couple of days too. That should help bring the pH back to normal.

Nope. I agree there is no reason to. Its good you mention it to people because a lot of people don't know they shouldn't. As far as this blister goes, I don't plan on touching it unless he is okay with it (which at this point he is NOT) (unless it gets infection or something and I have to intervene).

Looks better tonight than it did this morning. Still no signs of infection.

I have not tried a baking soda bath... How much do you use? Will it irritate the eczema he has? I was afraid all the soap might but it hasn't so far.

No we do baking soda baths all the time. When either of the kids get a rash or sore of then bums. I just sprinkle a bunch in while the tub is filling. Then swoosh it around. No specific amount.
Hope he starts feeling better!
