Paediatrician

Your son is only 6 years old so it is unlikely that he is entering puberty now.While young boys can have erections from time to time and this occurs completely without a sexual reason, it is unusual that your son has such frequent erections and also long lasting erections. It would be best to speak to your paediatrician about this. It may be necessary to do a hormone level test.
