    Hi, when my 12 yr old son went to the toilet last night he called me to say he was peeing blood. I ran in and saw his hands and thighs were blood. However i dont think i saw any blood in the urine. I am a single mother with no partner so he doesnt really have anyone to talk to. I thought it might be torn foreskin? He was really frightened and embaressed.
    Anyway i brought him to doc tonight and he couldnt see any tears in skin. He suspected an infection and prescribed antibiotics.
    Has this ever happened to anyones son??

    Elaine,you did the right thing bringing him to doctor.
    For any child of that age,blood is scary,particularly a boy because girls are aware of periods etc...
    Perhaps go back to the doctor when course of antibiotics is finished and get him to examine your son again.

    Is there any adult male in your life who could talk to him if he won't talk to you ? Uncle,cousin,grandad?
    It's an awkward age ,what with bodily changes and hormones escalating.
    Best wait at least a week and see if there's any changes.
    Good luck

    My 3 year old boy had the same thing happen. However it was like his urine was mixed with bkackcurrant juice. It wasn't pure blood. It happened twice, hasn't happened since. His now 6 nearly 7.

    I got specimen jars off the gp. So if they turned a funny colour they could be dipped to see if he had a kidney infection.
