Toddler's foreskin

My boy is now 15 months old. I dont push hs foreskin back at all. For the past two weeks the point of his penis is red and swolen. He doent want me even to wash it. Should I take him to a paediatrition? What could be the problem? Thnks for the time.

Paediatrician

This sounds like a condition called phymosis which is an infection of this area. It would be best for you to have him checked by your paediatriian.
