Infected circumcision?

Hey ladies I know it's been a while, but I've been busy with the baby for the past 3 weeks (can't believe he's almost a month old) but I have an important question. I'd post a picture but that would be weird & probably considered kiddy porn HA! But anyways I had my son circumcised, the doctor told me I could stop putting the Vaseline & gauze on it after the yellowing went away. So following doctors orders I did, well I noticed today there's a bump on the side of his penis, like near the head. He doesn't seem to be in pain & his stream is still good. Ill be taking him to the doctor in the morning either way just to make sure it's nothing serious. But I wanted to know what you ladies thought of it. If you can help me out that would be great, thank you!

It's fine. I've had 3 boys circumcised. Definitely take him to the doctor though.

I am, I gave him a bath & put some ointment on it with gauze to see if that will help. It just popped up so randomly. :-/ thank you.

He is probably fine. Both my boys were circumsized. Take him in to make sure but don't be too paranoid about it or let the insecurities of other women turn you into a hypochondriac . Just have common sense about things. Maybe google it to get an idea of what it could be.

Not to scare you but MRSA starts as pimple like bumps so get him checked ASAP! It could also be nothing serious but get it checked.

No idea! I agree that taking him to the doctor sounds like a good idea!

Update: it wasnt anything serious & I was doing the right thing by putting bactacin on it with gauze. I don't remember the name of it but it was caused by chaffing! So no worries! Thanks everyone!
