For about 6 months now, my son has been complaining that his penis bugs him. It started out mostly when he was in the car seat, so I originally thought it was the harness rubbing against him. But, over the past few months, he complains about it CONSTANTLY - ALL DAY. It doesn't matter whether he's naked, wearing underwear, or a pull-up. Doesn't matter where we are - he complains/cries about it.
Before you suggest taking him to the doctor, I already have. Dr. suggests that he's going through a normal stage of development for boys in which part of the old circumcision is sort of deteriorating. Dr. tells me that some boys complain. However, this is ALL DAY and he even pulls his pull up off in his sleep (resulting in mom cleaning off a crying toddler and changing sheets in the middle of the night).
He is the third out of four boys. I'm not entirely new at this. The other two boys never complained about this and I'm so frustrated that I can't help him out of his discomfort. Any suggestions/insight????? HELP!!!
