My son is four, and he is complaining of his penis hurting since he got out of a salt water pool. The tip seems to be a tad blue. It's not stinging when he urinates. Do we take him to the ER?

Is it tender or sore to touch?

Is there any discharge from the penis?

Are his testes sore to touch?

Please let me know.

He said it stings to touch, but I'm not seeing any swelling. We had him pee in a clean cup and I tested the urine with an AZO uti strip. It came up negative. I don't see any discharge or blood. His urine is nice and light and seems to be clear. He has gone again since then and said it is starting to feel better. My concern is that the tip is still pretty blue.
Pediatrician: Dr. SH, Physcian replied 1 year ago

Thank you for your response.

Do you have a picture that you could send on here for me to see how blue it is?

Please let me know.

There is no fever, I've checked for a string from his swim suit. He is saying it feels much better when he goes now. He wiggled it without pain and he let me poke each side of his scrotum without pain, so we are going to just watch him tonight. I think he will be ok. Thank you so much for your time!!!
Pediatrician: Dr. SH, Physcian replied 1 year ago

Yes I am sure he will be fine.

Just keep an eye on him.

Please do rate me before you leave.

Kindest regards

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

My 1 year old woke up with a sudden fever of 102 today.
my 1 year old woke up with a sudden fever of 102 today. We've given her Tylenol and it's gone down to 100.5 (now back up to 101.2 before bed). What worries me is that this afternoon and this evening she has started having involuntary tics - squeeze her eyes shut for a second or two. This is not blinking, it is very clearly a facial spasm or tic. She has also had a few jerky movements (somewhat like startle reflex when she was a newborn). I'm really afraid that these are febrile seizures … read more
