Pediatrician 's  Response

itching at penis seems to be a unlikely cause for 1year old to cry continuously

is there any swelling of the penis

is there any fever associated

how is the urine stream the flow continuous or not

one episode of excessive cry without any features of local infection or inflammation is not a right indication for circumcision

so write with further details so that we can help you better

take care

Thank you for your query,
Your child developed crying and itching due to a urine infection or local infection like balanoprosthitis.
Do complete urine examination to look for any infection and if it is there it should be treated with antibiotics after seeing your doctor.
Circumcision can be done now if it is indicated by your doctor.
It doesn't cause any sexual issues in the future.
It will be done under sedation and medication will be give to decrease the pain during and after the procedure.
It can be done from newborn period and it depends on the cultural and the clinical indication for it.
Hope I have answered your query.
