Tiny hole at end of foreskin
My (9 yo) son has only a tiny hole (1-2mm diameter) at the end of foreskin causing ballooning. He also has a urinary infection causing extreme pain (now on antibiotics). Is this hole going to get bigger in time or smaller?? He cannot be seen by a specialist for 2 weeks.
If the foreskin is extremely tight, often topical steroids takes care of the problem.
