  • yes, i have heard of something like a condom catheter. it basically fits over the penis and the urine is collected through a tube. i dont know if it would fit a child tho...

  • I have heard of these and furthermore have applied them to patient's bodies. If the smallest size were used, it may work. There is a stretchy material called Coban that is wrapped on top of the external catheter (looks like a condom on that end as PP stated) that holds it in place, but does not harm the penis. Look further into may be helpful to your son.
