DS complaining of painful penis

Ds who is 8 has been complaining that his penis hurts when in the bath wjen he comes to wash it. He can't pull the foreskin back to wash. Is this normal at this age? I'm not with his dad and can't really talk to him to find out if it is normal.

His older brother (10) seems to be ok but maybe it's just because he is older?

Is it worth seeing a gp?

Sounds like phimosis? Definitely worth chatting to GP!

Nope, not normal if he can't retract it and it hurts. Take him to the GP.
