My 3 yr old great nephew recently started touching and scratching his penis any ideas about whats going on?

When he complains it is erect, he does have eczema and his penis is dry, any solutions?

  • i'm with wheresthewayout-- take him to the doctor. i know there are creams out there for eczema but i wouldn't want to risk buying a cream that might irritate his boyhood. so i think the doctor might be the safest bet.

  • He may have an infection or something. Or maybe he is just finding it uncomfortable or something. Def call the doctor :)

  • could be masterbation if thats the case just redirect him to something else dont tell him it is wrong. it u dont think it is that it could be infection so it wouldnt hurt to have him seen. dont get imbarassed if it is just masterbation of some sort.
