What could this be?

My son's had diarreah for the last 3 days, the tip of his penis is like bright red, it just started and we've put desitin on it, could this be a rash? could it lead to infection? He's not circumcised. Any advice would be appreciated.

  • I would take him in to a doctor, but until then, you can try a bath with a little baking soda in the water. My DD had a little bit of red in her who ha... and the doctor said it was prolly caused from not rinsing the soap off of her well enough, and to put baking soda in her bath.

  • I would try some straight niacin cream. . . and definitely try the Baking Soda bath. . . GL As far as the diarrhea I would consult your Pediatrician, but pedialite should be ok. . . My DD dehydrated a lot and we were told to have the on pedialite most regularly starting at 2 mo. old. . .
