My 1 year old son has developed a rash on the head of his little penis.

There's also what appears to be a little red bump that seems to be filled with some kind of fluid on the side of the head of penis.

I've always wiped him down penis and all and bathe him regularly.

He doesn't seem to be bothered by this rash on his penis but I'm wondering what can I do to clear it up?

Aww poor kid. I'd recommend putting some diaper rash ointment on his penis. Give it time and it should be gone.

If not I recommend having his Pediatrician look into it.

Sorry to hear that.

When I was a kid and wet the bed I used to get that same type of penis rash.

My mom had me put Desitin rash ointment on it and it cleared it up. Used to use it every night and it kept the rash away.

The rash can be painful if it gets too bad.

Hope he feels better soon.
