blood on penis

ds1 (who is 2) has blood on the tip of his penis. He did a wee in his potty, and dp noticed a little bit of blood. If you touched it with a tissue you got 4 or 5 little blots of blood. He then did a wee in the bath, and again there was some blood on the tip afterwards. The wee is clear, he is in no pain when weeing and when asked if his penis hurt said yes, but very unconvincingly, and we didn't believe him (especially when he was tugging at it quite happily a few minutes later).

DP is not worried at all. I am only a little worried, not being the owner of a penis I don't know how these things are, and the fact that dp is so cool about it is good. But we just thought we'd check in case ...

So, does anyone know anything about why this could be?

Hi, fisil

Could he have scratched it with a fingernail (while tugging some other time!)?

possibly - but dp had a look and couldn't see any marks. Also, the blood does seem to be coming from inside.

Cystitis perhaps? Can little boys get that? But really, I'd think he'd be in more discomfort with cystitis. I'd definately see the doctor asap to check him out. Hope he's ok, poor little chap

Can I just revive this, cos a week later and it is still happening. Any thoughts?
