Is this okay?

My baby boy has had a cold for about a week now and all of a sudden he has diahrrea and I also noticed that at the tip of his penis where the circumcision was done there is a little slit that looked somewhat "oozy." What should I do about both things? I am sure the diahrrea is just because he has been sick.

  • Maybe it's infected? Best way to find out is to go the doctor :-) Hope he's okay.

  • Well the diarrhea and cold has been going around and he should be fine with that but the circumcision needs to be checked out. I say call the doctor and make an appt. go on ahead and let him know about everything that is going on with him while your there.

  • I would use a cotton swab and wipe his penis with some alchohol. If the ooze that is coming out is yellow or greenish in color, it may be a sign of infection. As for the cold,they are common with babies, as long as they havent had a fever for more than two days in a row without coming down. some pedialyte. If he continues to have diarheah 3 or more times within 24 hours, you should call doctor on that too.
    Hope he gets better soon!
