*Update* Help! why is my 2 year old saying his penis hurts? (no redness)

DS has been adamantly resisting diaper changes for about a week now. He cries and says "no diaper!" "All done" "ouch" etc... when I try to change him. At first, i thought it was because his penis was looking a little red, so I put him in sposies and used Balmex for a few days. Now it's not red at all and he's still resisting the diaper changes and saying "ouch." What could it be? Would love to hear ideas/experiences from other mamas. Thanks!

Maybe a Uti? Little boys don't get them very often, but my son has a few times, due to some early kidney issues. Might want to have the ped. check it out.

My son said that frequently when he was 2...it was usually when he needed to urinate. I asked the ped about it and neither of us could find anyting wrong.

I'd get him checked for a uti just in case.

Just thought I'd update: It turns out he has one of the coxackie viruses and he has one of the blisters on his penis that I hadn't seen. So glad it's not a UTI, but disappointed we just have to let it run its course (7-10 days). Poor kid is so miserable

Ugh. My 18mo got hand, foot and mouth while camping in the Grand Tetons. He screamed two nights in a row out of frustration at not being able to nurse. Boy, did our camping neighbors hate us!
