My son is 7 months old and just today at about noon I saw that his pubic area was noticeably swollen. I've been reading about the inguinal hernia, but don't believe that is it. The area around his penis and scrotum is swollen, but his scrotum itself is not swollen, his penis, however, is slightly swollen. A red, rash-looking spot appeared to the right of the base of his penis. It's hard to tell if that is causing him any discomfort, as he has had a cold and is teething. Also today, he started crawling. Could it just be from his crawling constricting the area? I plan to take him to the doctor tomorrow.
This morning swelling was down on the right side a little, but still prevalent on the left. I'm getting him an appointment, but hold little faith in finding anything out with the doctors in the town I live. Last time my son had a problem, they said there was absolutely nothing wrong with him and we were being paranoid parents. Well we take him to the Regional hospital a few days later and they take one look at him and say "Pyloric Stenosis"
My son is 6 1/2 months old and I got up to change his diaper and noticed the loose skin on the penis was red and swollen, I am not sure what to think of it or what it could be...if anyone has any ideas that would be helpful.....thank
