DS has been out of nappies for 8 months now. He has a tendency to hold on until he is busting and along with a wet spot I have noticed a white patch in his pants. He says nothing hurts, nothing looks red or sore, he washes regularly though we don't retract his penis when he washes. Do I worry or not about this?

IME, with two lads of my own, and nannying twin boys, if they have dark pants on, and dribble a little in the morning, yes, by the evening it can dry white. I think sometimes it is a reaction to the washing powder residue in pants, as I find it more obvious in the older stuff. I have certainly never thought anything sinister of it.

thank you so much, ds is NOT the sort to take kindly to white coated person fiddling with his bits unnecessarily
