Q.

penis disfunction i think

Hi. My son is four months old when he was 7days i had him circumcised. the past two weeks i have noticed when changing his nappy his penis seems to be inside like inside his body, then when i press on it, it comes out. There is no swelling or rash or anything on him. i am just concerned is this normal as i never experience this with my first son. Please advise

Paediatrician

This is known as a retractile penis and is very common. It tends to occur for a while in young baby boys and then all returns to normal with time. It is more common in baby boys that are a bit chubby.If this is still happening when your son is about 1 year old ask your paediatrician to see him.
