Its not really an emergency so calling 111 seems hysterical, so posting here for advice.

DS (aged 3) is complaining his penis is very sore. He says he can't sleep.

He announced this afternoon he hurt it on a stick at nursery on Friday. Nursery didn't mention anything to me (but that's not too much of a surprise). Called DH who said that DS was complaining of this yesterday whilst I was out.

It looks normal colour and not swollen. He's been urinating fine. I've put sudocreme on it just in case and he didn't flinch when I put it on. But he is still wailing it's sore in the middle.

Any advice would be very gratefully received.

Have you given painkillers? If so i think a GP appointment is the best way forward
