My 8 year old DS has what appears to be very dry skin on the underside of his penis, testicles, and insides of his thighs. It feels and looks like shrunken skin, only hard. He hasn't had any visible rash at all, but started saying that it burns about 2 days ago and now the skin appears like this. I have been applying cornstarch because it seemed to ease the burning and I assumed it must be heat rash because he's been playing outside a lot and its been hot.
I'm planning on calling the ped in the morning and asking if he needs to be seen, I just would like to know if any other moms have experienced this with their kids.
