Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The redness on the genitals experienced by your child is a form of inflammation, which can occur due to various diseases, such as:
Balanitis or inflammation of the head of the penis
Urinary tract infection
Insect bite or sting
Fungal or bacterial infections of the skin
The balanitis is a condition that is commonly found in penises that are not or have not been circumcised, especially in children under 4 years old. This is because the foreskin of the penis can store the remnants of urine, tissue, and feces that cause infection and inflammation to make the penis appear red, swollen, painful, itchy, fever, and even discharge.
Our advice, have your child checked by a pediatrician for immediate viewing, because after all the diagnosis can only be established if there is already a direct examination. Thus, the medicine given to your child can be more appropriate.
Meanwhile, make sure your child's genitals remain clean, compress his forehead with warm compresses if he has a fever, make sure he consumes lots of water and always change his diaper if it's dirty. So, hopefully answering your question.
