Just make sure it is clean by pulling back the skin and put "Polysporin"on it it is like Neosporin. This is what our Pediatrician recommended for our son he had a slight infection there.

Have you tried gently retracting it to see if anything is going on under there? At 5 he should be able to tell you if it's uncomfortable or if your pushing his skin past it's limits. You could even have him gently retract letting him know that he dosen't have to push it past it's limit. My three year old just got done with a foreskin infection crisis and it didn't really start like this if that makes you feel better, but perhaps it got caught on something and torn or he was playing with it and pushed it back to far?
