    Hi Tim. Very difficult to assess your situation without a visual examination. Parts of a penis head can look a bit ugly with the foreskin pulled back. I suggest that you go to your doctor and get checked out. It will take 5 minutes...just be sensible and go for it.

    my 4 year old daughter suffers with a constant stomach pain, sometimes it gets worse but she says she has it all the time, she doesnt have constipation or vomiting but does get very sore arround her bum. my doctor is useless and just gave her laxatives , any ideas

    My daughter is nearly 2..she is experiencing 'episode' of crying and falling to fall. She is unable to pick herself up and an adult who is with her has to aid her in doing this. She goes lithargic for couple of minutes and holds either of her eyes. This happens only every few months but when it does occur she can have upto 15 'episodes' within the space of a few hours. This cango on for 2 days and then shewill be for a few months and no symptoms persist. Other than this my daughter is fit and healthy...please help!!!

    My son just turned 4 we have been under the hospital for about a year now and hes had eeg's and mri scans and still found no brain problems but he has been diagnosed with focal epilepsy due t the electricity being produced further in the brain, When he has a seizure his eyes roll leg and arm stiffen and he's a bit twitchy sometimes he can do 10 in a day then nothing for a few weeks. He is now taking a anti seizure drug called Carbamazephine and they are at bay so go back and pester your gp for cosultant referal! My son is also very fit and healthy in every other way. Good luck x

    wow, this sounds very very similar to what my 8 year old is going through. Your Daughter is the first person I've found to have the same symptoms. She starts by having eye pain and this is a warning that she is going into an episode. She curls up in a ball and then after a couple of minutes she feels dizzy and her whole body goes completly floppy. The first episode lasted 3 days and wasn't as severe but now the episodes last between an hour and 24 hours and they are getting worse and worse. She cannot open her eyes when in an episode. Her CT scan was normal and we are waiting for MRI results. When she's not in an episode she is a normal happy child. It sounds very similar so maybe we can swap info if and when we get any?

    My friends daughter aged 4 is having problems pooing or should i say holding on to it because she says it hurts, it comes and goes all day sometimes and her bottom is sore from holding on this all started about a year ago because it hurt one day. She is changing her underwear often due to staining her own doctor gave her some medicine to soften the poo to make it easier to come out but does not seem to be working. I feel that it has gone on too long, she gets sent home from nursery and cant go out some days because of the way she is, for example crying and crossing her legs to stop it coming out.

    My advice would be to see your GP and ask to be referred to a child constipation or continence clinic as soon as possible. We spent a year having contradictory advice from different GPs whilst her constipation got worse and worse. In my experience GPs do not understand this condition or the way that it should be best treated. Her life has changed since she has seen the specialist.

    My daughter is 9.5 years old and also tip toe walks. Its not as noticeable when she wears shoes however when bear footed it is constant. The thing is she now walks funny and they kind of slap when she walks and she has these weird bony lumps. they kind look like bunions but are in the middle side of the foot, so look more like sticky out bones. I have too taken her to the doctor at 5 and was told shed grow out of it. Its frustrating because walking when bear footed looks really awkward fro her :/

    All parents concerned about their child's walking are usually right to be concerned, since they know their child best. It's true many children will grow out of problems as they develop, but who are the ones that will, and who won't? - and that is the real question for parents and healthcare professionals. I would imagine there are few if any GP's that would put their hand up and say they were confident in assessing pathological paediatric gait patterns, so here's a big tip...If someone tells you your child 'will walk out it' ask them these questions "What is the pathological features of my child's gait?", "what functional limitations does my child have?" "what are the developmental milestones that will show my child is improving?" and if the person sitting in front of you cannot answer them you are talking to the wrong person. Seek an immediate referral to the paediatric physiotherapists with the input of a paediatric podiatrist for foot supports. From your brief descrption I would guess she has metatarsus adductus and this can be helped. With children it is always better to see them as young as possible (i.e. when you thin there is a problem).

    My son is 5 yrs old and fully pee trained since age 2 but we r having a constant flow of pooh all day every day. He doesn't seem too bad in the mornings but gets worse through the day. I did get to see a pedatrician but all they did was reccommend regular laxatives if he gets blocked up which doesn't do anything imo. I make him sit on the loo 2 or 3 times a day and he does pooh every time but still soils his pants in between. He doesn't seem to realise he is doing it either as he will ask me to check him. It is so tiring and feel like i am constantly cleaning pooh and washing pants and spraying air freshener. I am at breaking point!. 😭 Beginning to think the doctors don't know what causes it but there seems to be alot of us in the same boat.

    Hi, my son is 3 and has had 3 ear infections, which is was prescribed antibiotics for. The doctors said one of his ears has a lot of wax build up and is quite scared. I asked to be referred to a ear nose throat specialist in which they done a pressure test on his ears, they stated there was nothing wrong. His last infection was 2 months ago but complains of ear pain constantly although there is no infection, he has complained for around a year and a half now but can't seem to get to the bottom of it, he constantly rubs it and crys that both his ears hurt. What could be the problem? My doctor just gives him anti biotics but I don't see why he has constant ear pain. Thanks

    I'd find a new dr. Can you go to a ear, nose and throat specialist? My guess is the scarring is causing more issues.

    Hi Emma,I know this will be very hard for someone so young.When I was at school and pre-school I used to get constant ulcers all the time.When I told my friends they didn't even know what they were!Sometimes they run through the family,so maybe some of your relatives got them!When I was 10 and eleven I was still crying with them then!Try checking with her if she's bitten her mouth;if she says no,maybe she did it in her sleep.It's possible that anyone can get ulcers like my daughter got them as a baby too!And my son started getting them at 3!My children now use corlum pellets,or sometimes certain types of mouth wash helps.

    I am living in India. My daughter of 2 wakes up a few times in the night crying looks like with pain. Normally I will take her in my arms and rub her tommy. Than she will most of the time stop crying and fall asleep again. I also noticed that she is scratching her bum in the night. Does somebody knows what it is? I sometimes also see some white dots on her anus. I went to the doctor and she told me it is the diapers. and give me some anti worm for her to drink. She drank it but it stayed the same. Can somebody help.

    Get some bonjela or igluu, they are both mouth ulcer treatments. Igluu you can buy over the counter at somewhere like boots. Apply a little bit every night until the ulcers go away. Or as a cheaper alternative, you can create a salt saline. Mix 3 teaspoons of salt with a good splash of luke warm water and just make your daughter gurgle it around her mouth, but don't let get swallow it as it tastes horrible. Hope this helps

    Don't worry Jae you are not alone. To solve your tight foreskin, I would recommend taking regular warm baths or showers. During these be adventurous and try to pull back your foreskin. It may hurt but you have to be brave. Do it a little bit more each time. Try it soft or erect, whichever seems more successful. Eventually it will start to shift and after a few months you should have a fully retractable foreskin. Erections at your age are normal and can be a nuisance. The best way to handle them is to try and solve Maths problems in your head - this may make it go down. Also try wearing good fitting boxer-briefs and baggy trousers and long T-shirts to conceal the problem. If in school a rucksac on your lap can help too. Finally, masturbation without ejaculation is not unusal at your age. Eventually it will happen and you'll certainly know about it. Just be patient and let your body develop. Hope this helps. You may wish to check out www.boysunderattack.com

    will it not retract at all, or is it partially retracting? Dont worry about the erections, that's all part of being thirteen - and so is the not ejaculating thing -just give it time.

    My daughter is 5 1/2 and has always had bottom trouble from constipation to the squits and constant tummy aches which pinch her she says. also 'very windy, when she coughs or laughs she passes wind which is now getting embarrassing for her. She's off to paediatrician next week so think I'll mention coeliac as an option or might be anything else?

    Hi Keri I was diagnosed 8 months ago with CD and have always suffered from being very young I remember always having tummy pains, im 24 now and feel so much better being on the gluten free diet, Its worth mentioning colitus and chrones as well as they can all be mistaken for each other, what ever you do do not settle for a diagnoses of IBS as I have apparently had this for ever ( which CD is also often mistaken for, I just wouldnt want your daughter to go through what I did for years.

    Constant toe walking isn't good in children it can cause the Achilles tendon to become shorter then necessary to be able to pull your foot flat witch will result in having to have surgery to re lengthen them trust me that's what happened to me not fun make your kids walk on there feet they will thank you later

    maybe thrush my 3 year old daughter suffers alot with thrush not only on her vagina but in her throat as well its horrible and its worse at night cause she is hotter

    I scored 39. I've recently seen a psychiatrist, and she wants me to take an Autism test and a Schizophrenic test. I can't even discuss this with my family as it's causing rifts; my mum keeps crying, and I feel awful. This sucks, I'm only 15.

    I would not worry about taking an Autism test - my 17 year old son has recently taken one and he coped fine. Many adolescents who have autism are misdiagnosed as schizophrenic at first as there is some overlap - my son was also suspected of having it. Having a diagnosis can be helpful. You can understand things that may have been difficult for you in the past and hopefully have support. Please tell your mum not to worry.
