URETHRITIS: His urethra can be infected that is the reason why it hurts when he urinates. It might respond to the current rx of Amoxil (amoxicillin) or get his urine for exams.

Can't link this: I can not come up with a way that strep or the Amoxicillin should have anything to do with your son's pain. You can make up a cool compress for him to hold on his crotch if in pain and that should help some.I would take him in tomorow and have him evaluated.Call the service tonight and see if your doc wants him to continue the med, although it's probably ok if he never had problems with it before.

Not amoxicillin: Amoxicilin is not a likely cause of such symptoms. If you remain concerned, check back with the doctor who prescribed it.
