Hello Miss T
As you have ruled out all other possibilities. Don't force the issue or bring too much attention to this. Some children (and adults) are simply highly sensitive or ticklish. Avoid the area other than when bathing or changing him and the issue will probably pass in time. Just don't make a big deal of this. If it gets worse or seems painful then get go back to your pediatrician.
