Genital hair on 1 year old, should I worry?

Genital hair on 1 year old, should I worry?

Probably OK: You can have the doctor check to see if it is normal hair that is seen in some children, especially darker complected. If it is pubic hair like you would see in a teenager, then that is not normal. The doctor can tell you which it is. ...Read more

I have a one year old son who I recently change his diaper and I saw blood spotting on his private part. What do you think it can be?

Foreskin Adhesions?: An amount of blood large enough to be seen is rarely going to be from your child's urine. The most likely source is from a break in adhesions around the base of the foreskin. Examine the skin at the base of the foreskin that looks inflamed. Foreskin can naturally adhese to head of penis and will cause small amount of blood when retracted and adhesions break. Apply vaseline irritated areas. ...Read more

Why does my 5 year old son touches his private parts when engaged in any activity! How to make him get rid of this! He is too small!

Boys and their penis: Because it feels good to them. This is not sexual. It is normal, natural behavior. Now the job of the parent is to firmly teach societal norms about when it is appropriate to touch ones self at the same time not instilling any shame of their body. ...Read more

Molluscum: Molluscum contagiosum is a common condition where small warty bumps (mollusca) appear on the skin. It is caused by a virus that can be passed on by skin contact or from contaminated towels, flannels, soft toys, etc. It is not serious and usually clears within 12-18 months without any treatment.

Molluscum: These wart like growths are actually a cousin of true warts that have many differences. They are viral, and tend to appear in clusters. A kid scratching them can trigger spread to other skin surfaces including the genitals. They differ from warts in their tendency to mature and fall off in months rather than the years it takes for warts. ...Read more

Circumcision? I have a uncircumsized 4 year old who keeps grabbing at his private parts and tells me his inside is itchy. He won't even let me retract it because he says it hurts too much. Could this be am infection? I am thinking of getting him circumcis

Circumcision? I have a uncircumsized 4 year old who keeps grabbing at his private parts and tells me his inside is itchy. He won't even let me retract it because he says it hurts too much. Could this be am infection? I am thinking of getting him circumcis

Normal boy behaviour: Many little boys love to grab & pull on their penis, this is normal, ift feels good. Smart boys will always give a reason if asked. Sometimes grabbed because they are having an erection which they don't understand. Could be itchy if he has small pearl-like collectionns of smagma under the foreskin. Unlikely to be anfection or inflammation unless red & swollen. Probably does not need circumcision. ...Read more

Got hsv-1 gential at 18 years old. I had one outbreak the first year and have had 6 since- I'm 32 now. The only confirmed outbreak was when I was pregnant and it was one lesion on the anus. Is this many outbreaks normal for genital hsv-1?

Yes: Yes, this is considered the normal pattern for HSV-1. What we generally see is that the outbreaks decrease in frequency over time after the first 12-18 months. From my experience, there's a lot of variability but generally speaking, a lot of people will still get outbreaks once a year, commonly as a result of high stress or an unrelated cold. Hope this helps ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with genital herpes I am 17 years old I believe my boyfriend has given it to me but how do I know if I already had it I have been with no one else but he has no symptoms also how do we behave sexually if he has given it to me then we

Herpes: The likelihood is that if you have not had sex, either intercourse or oral sex from another boy, that your boyfriend gave this to you. Once you both have it, there is no further risk to continuing sex, except that if he has had one sexually transmitted disease he may have others that have not been detected, and you should both be tested. ...Read more

I've got one small blister like bump at my private parts it itches now and then is it something to worry about?

I've got one small blister like bump at my private parts it itches now and then is it something to worry about?

Yes: Without an exam, I can only give general information and
dermatologic conditions are hard to discuss without seeing them. BUT
can be genital herpes; you would benefit by knowing about it. HSV comes and goes exactly like a cold sore, so the implied chronicity goes against that and a wart or an infected duct are other TREATABLE possibilities. ...Read more
