Hello,
My 3 year old non potty trained boy is now grabbing his crotch. I have a Dr appt for him on Thursday. He does not have a fever and there is no strong smell. What worries me now is that underneath his scrotum it seems swollen? Like his balls are actually smaller and wrinkled and underneath them is larger. Is this really bad? If he had not been grabbing himself I may have never noticed but if this is a bladder infection how bad is it to wait another day?

Thanks Sonia. He did not end up having one. We had him pee in the cup at his appt on the 11th. It came back with bacteria but after further testing all was normal. He of course is still grabbing himself but I think it's an awareness thing now. What they did tell us is that is opening is very small and could be prone to infection, and if he gets them more than once or twice they would send us to a urologist and talk about circumcision.... (scary!) They gave us steroid cream to put on it to encourage his opening to get bigger...

The sooner you get him checked the better. Is he in any pain? My almost 3 year old is in the middle of getting treated for yet another uti. I personally never seen what you're talking about. The symptoms that my son has either been fever, pain, or strong urine smell.

If you are concerned, take him to a walkin clinic (if you can't get a quicker appointment with the doctor) and have a urine test done. They will be able to tell you right away where it is uti or not (they do some sort of dip stick test which gives you the results right away and send it to a lab for more detailed results).

Good Luck and please let us know what the outcome is.



give him lots of fluids too!
