  • Well he took a shower, and after cleaning himself he started crying and saying that it is hurting/burning. so I took him out and after that I took a look and seen the different color? So I wasn't sure if maybe he had gotten soap up there or what?
    I just hope it's nothing serious, this is why I was wondering about the color.

  • Call the doctor. He could have a piece of hair wrapped around his penis cutting off circulation, he could have fallen and hit his penis. My son pediatrician told me that if the penis was every a not "normal" color for him, he had pain or buring to call right away. It never hurts to get him checked out.
