Resolved Question:

My son is 9 weeks old and was circumcised at 8 days old. Over the last day I've noticed the head of his penis has blue ish/purplish coloration. He is urinating normally.

Can you explain this? Is it normal? What causes it? And what should we look out for that might be a sign of something serious.

if there is increasing size of swelling or redness, or tenderness, or pus like discharge, this would require review from your pediatrician,
