Intact boy question

Simply trying to ask for advice, since I can't call his doctor today and don't know moms of intact boys. Not trying to start drama.

DH and I noticed yesterday that ds has a blister on his scrotum. It doesn't seem to bother him at all, so we figured we'd keep an eye on it. Today we noticed he's got a spot on his foreskin as well. It looks different, almost like it's smegma but you can't wipe it off. We just moved and haven't met ds's pediatrician yet but everyone says he's holistic so I'm hoping he's intact-friendly. Neither spot is bothering him. He's never had anything out of the ordinary down there so I'm kind of lost. Keep an eye on it or call the doctor in the morning?

Re: Intact boy question

I'd soak him in a lukewarm bath, no soap but add some baking soda, not a ton, maybe 1/2 cup or less. let him play/soak in the water 15 minutes and dry him off. Do it again tonight, and then tomorrow morning check on it.
There are sometimes irritations that pop up but the baking soda soak always takes it away. If it doesn't, then I'd call the dr and see if maybe it's yeast.
