My 10 year old son says his private is burning when he urinates, what do u think that is? I'm going to make him an appointment with his dr tomorrow.

Since how long the symptoms are there? Any other sympXXXXX XXXXXke rash? How is urine color? Is there any significant past illness?

Regards.

He said this just started today. I didn't see a rash but I didn't examine him closely at all. No there has not been any significant previous illness.
Thank you for the input.

His symptoms suggests an infection in the urinary tract. The other probable cause may be stone. He should have an examination by doctor & an urine analysis. Antibiotics will be required in case of infection. In some cases , sonography can be required too. He should take plenty of fluid which can help to flush out the urinary system.

Any query, please ask.
Regards.
