DS is just 2 and a few hours ago we heard him crying in pain from the playroom. My DH went and got him and he was pointing to his penis in his diaper and crying. We both opened up his diaper and his penis looked swollen a tad and there was a spot about the size of a dime of light yellow tan on his diaper which we are assuming was some type of discharge. Our son is uncircumcised and has frequent baths. He is not in any daycare environment or left with sitters of any kind. After that he seemed fine. I changed his diaper and looked at his penis and it did not seem to have any discharge coming from it. Soon after I put his new diaper on he was playing in front of us and started that cry. My dh said he must have peed and it hurt. Sure enough ds pointed to that area and said boo boo. I told dh maybe it is a UTI but he thinks it is ballooning (something he found on the internet that is common in uncirc toddlers. Our Ped does have Saturday hours and we will take him in in the am but has anyone experienced this with their toddler.
Update: We went to the pediatrician Saturday morning and he said all was fine. He did not see any infection and told us all was fine and checked everything and he has been fine.Answer Question

My son is uncirc and he gets infections in the skin area sometimes. His doctor has us apply athletes foot cream on his penis.
