1 doctor agrees
In brief: Yes
Newborns often have swollen genitals from mom's hormones and sometimes related to the trauma of coming through the birth canal.
Older babies should not have swollen genitals. Suddenly swollen genitals in combination with fussiness or definite pain should be considered a medical emergency.
