My son is a little over 2 (was 2 in Feb). He is not circumcised. Today I've been noticing his penis (shaft part) is bulgind out (sort of like a balloon) in the middle. It doesn't seem to bother him except when he is having an erection he fusses like maybe it hurts?
I was wondering from moms of uncirced boys, have you experienced this? It it normal, like a growing thing? Or is it a sign of infection? Should I take him to the DR? I have not seen tis before, but I don't want to take him in for something perfectly normal.
UPDATE: I think we figured out it is an infection called balanopostitis (DH found a pic that looks just like what DS has) Looks like it requires prescription anti-fungal cream, medication or antibiotics. :-/ So I'll be calling the Dr in the morning and hopefully getting an appointment tomorrow.
