my son (4) has got this and currently taking antibiotics for it. He got the symptoms on friday and my question is...is it ok to take him swimming on tuesday? the symptoms seem to have cleared up.

Balantis is an infection of the foreskin. his penis was all swollen but now it seems back to normal.

Did you take him? Was he ok? My ds had this once as a toddler.

I would see how it is. would it kill to miss a lesson? - certainly I'd wait until the ab's have all been taken before going swimming - its a haven for yukkiness so it certainly wouldnt be the cleanest place you could take him...

I did take him as it all looks back to normal. Fingers crossed!
