Hi,
The complain of your son is right.You need to clean his penis by averting the fore skin on glans and remove collection of smegma underneath it.If it remains un cleaned there is smegma collection leading to infection and burning pain on the part.
If this condition continued,phimosis may occur.
So daily cleaning is a must while taking bath.

My five-year-old son has begun complaining this evening of burning during urination. He also urinated before bed, then within a few minutes said he needed to go again, but very little additional urine was emitted. When not urinating, he says his penis hurts. Could he have a UTI?

Hello, my son is 5 yrs old and he is saying that his penis hurts when he pees.. I looked at his penis and there is a flesh colored bump next to his pee hole.. It almost reminds me of a blister.. He said that it started to hurt him right after we got back from the beach..

After not being satisfied about the chlamydia diagnosis I searched online and came to the conclusion of Smegma? I've never heard of this but the pics are exactly whats going on with me.
