Yet another issue with my kiddo (the 6 yr old burping) is that he has been saying that his 'privates' bother him and I catch him constantly tugging it/stretching it out. This has been going on for about 3 weeks and I have taken him to the doc who says there is nothing physically wrong, put him in loose boxers/pants, warm baths and lets see if it gets better. Well, I have been doing that, but yet, still the same issue. I try to find out if it is 'as much' as before, but with a 6yr old, they don't understand that too much. I don't want to have to see a urologist as the pedia mentioned....has anyone gone through this with their lil' one? It isn't due to excitement either, saw him tugging in the shower and it wasn't in that stage, if you will.

To tell you the truth from reading your last post he may just be an obsessive type personality. He comes up with something in his little mind & beats it to death. His penis probably hurts because of all the tugging. I bet in a week or two he finds something else to obsess over. Not a big deal. Some kids are just like that. I would first bring him back to the Pediatrician & have them do another urine test. If it comes up negative again, it's time for a talk. My Son just discovered his & I say "if you keep on grabbing it, it may fall off. Then what?" Call me a fibber but it worked here! Just ignore him when he obsesses over it & say "Stop that!" Ask him if he sees other boys doing it & say then you shouldn't either!
