Every time i go to wipe or change his nappy and i happen to gently touch him to wipe he wringles in pain and smacks my hand away. He can't yet tell me where it hurts but its mainly his tiddler and surrounding area.

Definately go to the dr. This happened to my little boy about a month ago & it turned out to be an "adhesion" & not an infection at all (thank goodness) but still painful.

my son had a circumcision but the doctors didnt get all the extra skin and when he was a few months old even though we cleaed it and stuff it was trying 2 retach its self and i hurt my son really bad he wouldnt even let u touch him wit out crying. I took him to the doc and they burned the extra skin off and in just a few days he was happy again.

Jen definately get him to the doc's as soon as you can to have him checked and have piece of mind. You say he is intact, he very well could have a yeast infection starting. it is a common thing for intact boys. not saying he is dirty or all intact boys get them, but the possibility is there. Hope your little man's tiddler feels better soon.BTW cute name for the boy parts.;)

Just try to get him into see a doctor asap. Also remember when wiping wipe the wee area first then the back area never the other way because that can cause irritations too. Goodluck hope it gets sorted soon.

It's more than likey a yeast infection, yes little boys can get them! Call the doctor, and in the mean time but him in the bath, clean it real good, and let the air get to it for a bit!

Infection is common in intact boys when the foreskin is forcefully retracted. It is a common misconception about intact boys that you must push back the foreskin to clean and this can lead to infection.
Jen, I'm not sure if this applies to your son, I asked but you didn't answer. Here is a care sheet for the intact penis just in case that may have caused the problem:

My son does that too but he just doesn't like it to be touched! He says owie when I wipe him but he can grab it and he is fine... Maybe let Jim run around without a diaper for a bit to see if that helps... I'd also call the dr too! He could have an infection of some sort! Better to be safe than sorry!

Definately get it checked soon. It's not uncommon for kids to get a hernia, and that could be causing pain and if left unrepaired could cause serius damage to the intestines.

Oh ok his penis. You could probably take him to a walk in clinic. Do they have any in your area?

I would call the doctor. Maybe he is getting a bladder infection or infection of some sort. Just to be safe. Call the doc.
