For about 2 weeks, my 4 year old keeps saying his penis hurts. Everytime I check, he seems to have an "erection." I've asked him to show me where it hurts. Sometimes he says the head and sometimes he says the stem. I took him to the doctor and he couldn't find anything. He checked for hernias and also checked his urine. The doctor said there was some very minor redness on the head and he gave me some ointment. Has anyone else experienced this? It's driving me crazy because every couple hours my son is complaining of pain. I wash his clothes in Tide Free, his underwear aren't too small. I applied vaseline just in case the skin was too dry while it was stretching. I don't know what else to do. The doctor says if the pain continues for another couple weeks, I should see a neurologist.
