User :   My 4year old son fell off a bench an hour ago. The head of his penis is bruised and almost looks like several blood blisters. Now he is acting fine and has urinated without pain or problems, his urine was pale yellow and clear. He says it is sore to the touch when he shakes it after urination. It does not appear to be swollen. Would this be considered ER visit worthy?
Doctor :   hi
User :   hello
Doctor :   it does not require an ER visit
Doctor :   you can give him the tylenol for the pain relief
User :   I have given him Tylenol
User :   is there anything I should watch for? or do I need to follow up with the ped?
Doctor :   as he has passed clear urine and there is contusion of the penis head it is unlikely he has an urethral injury
User :   Thank you
Doctor :   it is good if you follow up with the ped for any specific advise for the faster recovery and to prevent the infection. as the specific advise requires physical examination
User :   Great I will call in the a.m thank you for you help in this matter
Doctor :   until than follow the general wound care measures
