Small child, rashes around penis, scrotum, top of legs, severe pain. Suggestions?
My son is 8 years old. He went swimming 48 hours ago in a friends pool. Last night we noticed he had a rash all around his penis , scrotum and the top of his legs where the shorts were covering him. The pain seems to be greeting worse although the rash looks better, he says his scrotum is stinging and he is crying with the pain. What can I do??
hello. this could be due to irritants in swimming pool water. you can try soothing lotion like - calamine lotion. apply over local parts. you can try some pain killers for 1-2 days as it helps in reducing inflammation also .keep me posted.
