Welcome to Healthcare magic.

Your son might probably be having urinary tract infection.

Urinalysis may be done for confirmation.

Till infection is confirmed by the test, you an give him cranberry juice. Cranberry juice helps in faster recovery from urinary tract infection.

Does that answer your question?

History noted. From the history it is clear that he is suffering from urinary tract infection. That is the reason he is touching and rubbing the genitals. The smell indicates that urine is highly concentrated. its good that you gave a course of antibiotics. The same antibiotic you continue for 7 days minimum. That completes a course. If you have given for that duration already, fine. No need to repeat again. Give him at least 1 litre of water per day other than milk. he will be relieved. If still he has more frequency, get one session with pediatrician to rule out Phymosis.
Good day.
