This can be a diaper rash but James I think your baby has a skin infection aggravated by the diaper rash. You have to see a doctor and get some good antiseptic rcream

I believe my child may have a diaper rash. He has an read urethra (about 2 days) and just recently has around 5 or so red bumps on the tip of his penis and some on his scrotum. He is 13 months old and does not seem to show signs of discomfort. I am wondering if I should take him to the doctor. I have many nieces and know what it looks like on a little girl, but not my own little boy. Thank you for your insight.

About a week a a few days ago I had unprotected sex with my girl who has been very faithful. 2 or 3 weeks before I ve had unprotected sex with 2 others but both of them were and still are clean. About a week ago I noticed a red bump on the bottom right of the base of my penis. Almost on my scrotum but still on my penis, kind of weird feelings started to begin in my scrotym but it s not too noticeable. Days later other bumps and lesions started around my genital area so I went to urgent care. The doctor said it didn t look like herpes or an std and said it was pimple and prescribed me doxy and zinc oxide. The creams been working and the bumps are starting to diss appear a little the past couple of days but I still have scares. The day after the doctor a cold sore formed on my lip. I ve had cold sores before so I thought maybe bacteria from down there just spread to my lip and created one. My girl started getting itchy bumps on the back of her legs the day after we had sex but none of them in or on her vagina and none of them itched up there she said. None of my bumps itched but they now feel a little weird but I think it s because there s healing. When we had sex it was for about an hour and a half and was really sweaty which can cause a rash and other things. No pain when I pee and no muscle aches really.What could this be?
