Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for calling H.C.M.Forum.
Your 8 year old son had itching of penis, from 4 days. There is creamy discharge, when pushed back, and clears , and reappears after some time.
It appears to be some fungal infection like candidiasis. I advise you to consult a dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment, to prevent adhessions to surrounding tissues.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery.
Best regards.
