Difficult BAK Due To Reddening Of The Tip Of The Penis In A 2 Month Old Baby?
Good afternoon, I want to ask how to treat the red tip of the penis which makes my ankle always cry and push when I’m going to burn, and if I hold the child still crying like that, I am 50 days old … please explain.
Hello Neli, Thank you for the question.
The symptoms you have listed above are likely caused by balanitis. Balanitis is an inflammation of the tip of the head of the penis which can cause redness of the skin, swelling, pain, discharge under the prepuce, pain during BAK, and difficulty pulling the prepuce. Balanitis can be caused by irritation, bacterial infection, or fungal infection. In children, this condition can occur if the genital area is not kept clean or due to irritation, for example to diapers, laundry detergent. We recommend that you take your child to see the doctor so that the doctor can determine the cause and then determine the right treatment for your baby.
Take the following recommendations:
avoid using tight diapers
avoid using soap on the genital area
clean the genital area with warm water and gently wash it
Hope this information is helpful.
