Hoping someone here can give me a little advice or has been through something similar or even what this could possibly be.
I came home from work last night and my son was standing in front of me holding himself almost looking like he was doing the infamous pee pee dance. I told him to go to the bathroom and he said I dont have to it just hurts. He said it has been getting redder and redder all day long. Immediately concerned I took him to his bedroom to look. His scrotum was BRIGHT red. Not a rash just the entire thing one solid color of red. His penis looked fine but I wanted to move it to check the underside but he would not let me touch anything crying that it hurt. So I asked him to and when he did his penis is sticking to his scrotum. His scrotum was also very mushy and hanging low. So my first thought was well maybe he sweat alot in gym today and its just irriatated. I let him sit in a bath for awhile and when he first got out he said he felt better but it was still the same color.
He then later started saying it was hurting again so I decided to put some desitin on him and see how he was this morning. Well putting the desitin on was a two team effort. My husband had to hold him down while I did because the kid was screaming bloody murder. After it was on he said he felt a little better and went to bed.
He work up this morning and it is still red but not as red as it was last night. I put him in loose boxers and jogging pants to go to school in. If it gets worse again throughout the day and its the same as last night I am at a loss.
Has anyone had anything similar with their little boys? Any suggestions? Odd topic to post about and I kind of feel funny doing it but will take any help I can get.
On and off for the past several months my DD has been complaining that her head hurts, especially at night. I deemed it that she was tired would send her to bed and then she would be fine. This past Saturday she was playing outside and came in at 11am crying that her head hurt. Nothing happened outside that would have caused this. I told her to go lay down and close her eyes. Five minutes later she was out cold. She slept for and hour woke up and came out crying that her head was killing her. I gave her some Motrin and we layed down together in my bed. She slept for 2 hours woke up, vomitted then went back to sleep for another 2 hours. When she finally woke up she said she was feeling fine. Is it possible that she is starting with Migraines? My DD never sleeps a whole day away. She had no fever and no other symptoms. It seemed like a migraine to me. Does anyone's young children suffer from migraines? Any help is greatly appreciated.View Thread
I need some advice. My son is 6 years old and had 2 accidents tonight alone. He was putting water in the dogs bowl and just peed and started crying. He is swearing up and down that he didnt feel like he had to go. I thought maybe he just waited to long then it happened again 30 minutes later. I told him he would not get in trouble if he did feel like he had to go he just had to tell me and he insists that he did not feel like he had to pee at all. Has anyone had this problem before with their kids? What could this possibly be?View Thread
