Urinary and Genital Disorders (Children)
My 3 year old is circumcised, but has quite a redness under his foreskin.
Usually this is from mild irritation and is not an issue of concern. Another potential cause relates to whether he has significant redundant foreskin after circumcision, or adhesions between the foreskin and head of the penis. At times the adhesions separate and then it can cause significant redness, but it is not problematic.
