My son is 5 years and for the past couple of months has been complaining that his 'pee-pee' hurts. Most of the time he is erect. We have seen his pediatrician and they did not feel there was cause for concern. These episodes are increasing and warm or cold cloths do not seem to relieve the pain. Has anyone had experience with this and do you have any suggetions?
This isn't such an uncommon complaint, and sometimes we never figure out what the problem is. Assuming that nothing looks wrong-- nothing is red or swollen-- the most common explanation I've found is that some kids hold their urine too long, and then end up with bladder spasms and pain.
Another potential explanation in this case, since the pain is with erections, is if there is some tightness of the skin or something that becomes uncomfortable. Does his erection look normal and straight and a little upwards?
