    My 3 yr old isn't circumcised and is complaining his penis hurts. More like the tip of it. Sometimes it's red other not at all. Called his doctor and they told me to keep a eye on it. He won't even let me touch it. I'm worried.

    My son recently went tru this as well. His pedi said a warm bath should help. He started to cramp and scream every time he had to pee. The warm bath helped him urinate w/out pain and also may have unblocked any gook trapped. BUT he also sent me to a pediatric urologist. We found that the base of his penis was swelling, and his "spray" was not how it should be, also had issues with foreskin being to tight? His tip was very red some days and other days looked fine? Same with base of penis. Some days very fat, others normal.... Anyhoo they recommended a circumcision to stop the issues we were having. We did go ahead and have the surg at 18mos, hes now 24 months and no issues whatsoever since? Just happy hes pain free

    My son was diagnosed at 6 months with phemosis, when the foreskin was too tight. We skipped circumcision and instead used a steroid cream and gently pulling back to loosen.
    It isn't 100 percent but the specialist is confident by teenager years he will be fine- they can fix themselves.

    Maybe his head there is more sensitive? Good luck!
