I don't know if there are any on this board but I need some help. I just noticed a lump under the skin, seemingly inside, my baby's penis. Considering it's pretty small the bump seems huge. No fever and he doesn't seem to be in pain. I flipped out and started Googling and came up with smegma pearl. Anybody have experience with this? Could that be what it is? I don't want to take him to the pedi if I don't have to. I'm scared of what they will want to do to him. I'm going to call in the morning and talk to a nurse if I can. Thanks in advance.
My cousin's little boy had this. She just said she soaked him in a warm bath for a while and pulled his skin back gently and washed it with light soap and it came out. You may have to soak him while you hold the skin back to let the bump soak in the water itself. Hope this helps.
No, you're not supposed to pull the foreskin back, you can cause a lot of damage and infection. This specific thing happens as the skin begins to separate but since the area around the opening is the last to separate it can take a long time for it to work its way out. However, it is supposed to work its own way out eventually. I'm just hoping that's what it is.
Tina...we don't have penises so it makes sense we don't know what to do
Oh, you! Although... My Dad tells me I was supposed to be a boy, so when the Dr. held me up and showed him I was a girl, not a boy, the first thing our of my father's mouth (according to the way HE tells the story) was, "Did something fall off on the way out?" Thanks, Dad.
