2 year old penis problems

I have a 2 year old and every time I wipe or wash his penis he says it hurts.  He also never touches his penis or gets erections.  I asked his doctor about it awhile back and he says it is fine but it has been going on now for over a year and I am worried that there may be somthing wrong with his penis any advise would help thanks!

This does not sound like an endocrine problem. He more than likely does not like to be bothered there. He is only 2 and if you are concerned about any developmental issues you might ask his pediatrician about the need to see a urologist, but if anatomically he is developed and the testes are descended and the urethral opening is fine and he can urinate with no problem then this sounds fine.
Also if he is not circumcised he may be prone to infection or phimosis-also NOT and endocrine problem but worth getting addressed and learning how to keep the area from becoming infected or inflammed.
