My son had two red little spots on his scrotum a few days ago, I noticed them and just thought to keep an eye on them. Yesterday morning his whole scrotum was bright red and painful so I took him to the doctors.
The doctor thought it was nappy rash as he has had diarrohea for the last 3days and said to put daktozin on it and if that didn't help gave me a prescription for some anitbiotics to get for tomorrow (sunday), then to see him on Monday if it's worse. The antibiotics are incase its a skin infection.
Well it is so much worse today, the red raised area is now under his scrotum and in his fat folds to the sides and is extremely painful to touch and can't sit or lie on his belly cause of the pain, he just lies on his back with his legs spread in the air.
Has anyone's son had a nappy rash which looks like raised red skin on the scrotum and spread down? If it's still there we will be at the doctor on Monday (they are closed tomorrow) but thought I'd see if anyone else has had this.
