His penis was bleeding.

Caiden has been having accidents all week but I thought he was just regressing with the potty. The past two days he's been complaining that his penis hurts and is holding it when he doesnt have to pee.

A few hours ago I asked him to let me see and pulled down his underwear and there was a little bit of blood of his underwear. I called the emergency doctor and he said give him cranberry juice and bring him to the ER if it gets worse. So far it hasnt and his pee is a normal color. I really hope it doesnt get worse.

Is bleeding normal with a UTI?



I took him to the hospital. He doesn't have an infection. His pee hole is tighening/closing. We're being sent to a urologist and he got a script for numbing cream.

I've heard of it before, but I personally have not had bleeding with UTI. I hope he's feeling better soon.

Is he intact or circumcised? (Asking because wondering if there's a possibly he retracted by accident, etc. if he's intact).

Bleeding can often occur with a UTI - keep track of any fevers, tummy or back pains, etc.

Good luck!!

It can happen if it's a bad one. I have personally never had it happen to me. My sister has tho. Id go to urgent care for an antibiotic.

If it's a bad one Yes there could be blood. Was it red around the tip? Swollen?

If it's a uti his pee would be darker and it would be painful to urinate. If it were a uti that is bad enough that there was blood it needs antibiotics. It could also be an infection on his weewee also...

Is he circumcised?  If he isn't, he may have pulled the foreskin back, causing the bleeding (and possible damage).

I have peed blood with a UTI but never had blood discharge.

Blood is more often associated with soap irritation in the vons fossa (the area right inside te hole). Having him soak in a bathtub for a few minutes several times today will help rinse any soap. Also avoid bubble bath or having him sit in soapy water for the next week so the area can heal.
