My 5 year old Circumised son has lately been complaining about pain in his penis. The pain is inconsistent, at first I thought it was that he was holding his urine too long before he went. But now, I have been reminding him more to go and he still complains of pain. So I looked more carefully at it and the tip of the penis is a bluish color and he has a maroonish ring around the area right before the head of the penis. When I touched the tip the color changed to a pale white and then went back to blue after I removed my finger. He says the pain is a 5 on the scale of 1-10 and that it just comes and goes. I guess I am wondering if it is something urinary or maybe a hygiene issue. Thanks for your help. A concerned Mommy
