My 5 1/2 months old son has a change in his penis, the Crown (i guess you would call it) is bigger than it has been in the past, could an allergic reaction cause it???

He is a big boy 20lbs so he is a fatty. since he has fattened up his penis hides like a turtle and i have to pull the foreskin back to clean him. anyway wen I pull the skin back to clean him the skin around it (under the head) is thicker than it was or like ther is more skin.. and it has the pruney look to it.. idk if i should be freaking out.. Its not red, draining or what i would call swollen..and he is circ'

  • if she wouldnt of had it circumsized she wouldnt have to pull the skin back? uh that makes no sense you would have to pull the skin back either way IT'S TINY so yes it would hide you have to pull it back to clean sons 4 months and circ too his also hides because it's small nothing you can do about that it's normal when it's bigger it wont do that i would just take him to the pedi and ask them about it they know whats normal or not could just be getting bigger or something?

  • If you wouldn't have circ'd him you wouldn't be dealing with this, nor would you have to take the time to pull back his foreskin and clean it. Just a little FYI. Also, maybe you should take your son to his doctor who can give you real medical advice rather than ask a bunch of women on the internet.

  • I'd double check with the Dr, or a Pedi Urogolist.
