anyone have any ideas why my babies penis is swollen?


Yesterday my mam was changing lo's nappy and said he looked like he has a blister or something on his penis and the this morning it looked really swollen. I don't know what little boys willies are meant to look like so I don't know if it looks normal or not, but to me it looks very swollen, not just the tip but all of it, and it looks like its quite tight iykwim? It doesn't seem to be hurting him or anything so maybe it is just normal and I'm being a neurotic mother lol I'm taking him to the doc tomorrow for his injections so ill bring it up .. Just wondered if anyone had any ideas? Xx

Could it possibly be balanitis? Xx

I would have it looked at just to be sure its nothing, but its very possible its just a normal irritation.

We had our LO's lip swell up when he was a couple weeks old. We had to go the ER etc they couldn't find a cause. Our pediatrician who saw us the next day said it was just one of those things, probably contact dermatitis (allergic reaction) and that it happens quite often, usually with the penis and that he gets parents calling him about their chid's swollen penis.
He advised us not to worry about what might have caused it unless it happens again.

So have yours looked at but don't freak out

Could it possibly be a yeast infection? My son had this when he was about 4 months.
