my sons tip is red.. i was cleaning it yesterday and put some neem oil on it (natural anti fungal) and notice that he can be slightly retracted now, enough to see the tip of the head of his penis.

is it normal for them to be "red" during natural retraction? i know he has never been forcibly retracted by an adult, but he does play rough with his penis in the bath and such, so im wondering if he accidently hurt it?

hes 17 months old, and it doesnt seem to bother him otherwise. im going to strip my diapers and continue to treat for yeast just incase, and of course take him to pedi if it gets worse

Normal..and what do you mean you were washing it? All it requires is washing like a finger in warm water, not "washing". :)

I know. He was in the tubby and I stood him up to wash him and tmi but he was erect and the tip was sticking out of his foreskin.. I just didn't want to post he had a erection lol. I never retract him tho :)

This is off topic, but where do you get neem oil? :)

Quoting Kayla [:)]♥:" Neem oil is used in a lot of phimosis creams because it helps skin to be more prone to stretching."


i ddint know that. think it could be harming him maybe? i put it on every night to help guard against yeast (we CD and he pees ALOT ALOT due to being on lasix for his heart condition)

Quoting Kayla [:)]♥:" No, he's probably fine. So long as it's retracting slowly and not forcibly, then I wouldn't worry."


TY. we have nystatin as well for yeast, but it seems to burn him (he cries when i put it on him) and the need oil seems to do the trick, we only have had 1 yeast outbreak-- right after antibiotics go figure-- and we CDed since he got out of the hospital. i also use TTO in the wash too
