Uncircumcised boys can easily get yeast infections AND diaper rash between their foreskins and their penises.  I found this out the hard way, because my firstborn son's pediatrician didn't believe in circumcision  & talked me out of getting him one.  He went through no end of probmens, not least of which was when he started school and his organ looked different from the other boys' (we lived in the Bible Belt at the time).  Needless to say, his two little brothers both got circumcised.

We took DS to the Dr thinking he had a UTI.  She said it was rare that he would have one(DS is 7 and circ'd, yes I went anon to avoid bashing)  He had not been feeling well the week before but was fine since.  He had strep throat and his pain was from the strep. We have been to the er twice since and they tried doing xrays. I asked they do a strep test and he came back pos both times.

Im not saying he has strep Im saying Ive been told for DS whos been cut that its rare for little boys to have UTIs.  Good luck and hope he feel better.  If he pops a fever take him to the ER right away though!

This happened to my nephew. But he had a rash on his penis, it was strep. I would have never believed it if I didn't know him!

Circed boys can get yeast infections too. Anytime there are folds, you are more susceptible to them. it is not a big deal. Girls get them too. Just wash and dry well. Use some cream if needed. I am sorry you found it so challenging to keep your child healthy without medical intervention. People act like its the end of the world when an intact child gets an irritation. 

I find it really weird that your son and his friends were comparing penises. 

I am sorry that you live in a shitty area, and you and your kids have to conform to peer pressure.

 Good luck.  My DS always giggled when he had a chub =/  IDK if it was the shocked face I had or HE just really thought it was funny.  Either way I hope its nothing major and all is well!

It could be a UTI or Bladder infection, take him to the doctor already.
