12 months - swollen penis
I am currently using pampers nappies for my 12 months old son. Yesterday in the evning when I changed his nappy I discovered that his penis was swollen. I think his nappy was too tight (still not sure).What causes this and how do I treat him? During the day my mom takes care of him and she said to me his penis was fine. PLEASE HELP

Cony, it will probably have cleared up by the time you receive this reply (I’m having oodles of problems with my internet connection), but it sounds like it might just be to a superficial fungal infection. If it hasn’t cleared up by the time you receive this, the best would be to see your doctor. Good luck.
