Problem with son's circumcision?

My son is three months old. After his circumcision, we were very careful to clean the area so he would not get a penile adhesion. I guess I had been missing a spot, because now he has what I assume to be a hardened area of dead skin. There is a dry, crusty thing under the head of his penis, and he cries when I touch it. Does anyone have any experience with this? Anyone know how to get rid of it? I'm going to mention it to his pediatrician, but it's Sunday afternoon so I thought I'd come here first.

try just wiping it off when you give him a bath or putting some cream on it. but i would defenitally get it checked out to make sure its nothing serious.
