My son is 2 months old. He was born at 35 weeks and spent 15 days in the Special Care Nursery. He is circumcised and this was done while he was still at the hospital when he was a week old. Everything healed nicely and there were no problems at all- not only my opinion, he was also in the care of professionals at the hospital who watched him heal.
About a week ago I was changing his diaper and noticed a yellow blister bubble on his foreskin toward the tip of his penis. The next day it was still there for the majority of the day and then went down. Two days later, it came back and there was another part blistered on the opposite side. The weirdest thing about it is the fact that sometimes it is there and other times it is impossible to see where it was. It is not hard, not crusted, not red... only yellow and raised.
I asked a pediatrician who I met (going to his own doctor this week) but the ped I asked had never seen/heard of such a thing.
I do know I switched diaper brands around that week- I had been using Pampers exclusively and started using some Huggies diapers and I still am.
Has anyone ever seen anything of the sort happen to your son? No fever, no pus leaking out, just blisters that come and go. PLEASE HELP!!
