Customer Question

My 5 1/2 month old son has a small blister on the tip of his penis. He was circumcised at 1 day old. It doesn't seem to hurt him when I change his diaper or bathe him. It looks as if is going to pop. Should I take him to the doctor I'm super worried
JA: It's hard to know for sure. The Pediatrician will figure it out.
Customer: Should I take him to the er now because it can be something serious or should I take him to his pediatrician in the morning

Thank you for waiting.
It is not necessary to take him to ER.
You can take him to doctor in the morning.
It can be from an inflammation or irritation.

It would subside gradually.

I hope this information will be helpful.
