Nappy sensitivity

by Kerry
(Wirral. Uk)

My 4 yr old boy has autism and spd and non verbal. He seems to be increasingly in discomfort when wearing his nappy. I have tried several kinds and pull ups.


Each time he is tugging at penis or pulling nappy out or away from him. He gets to the point where he sobs for hours. He won't go nappy less and have tested him for water infection and looked for any outward signs of any pain and no soreness or redness etc.

So if he is super sensitve to his penis touching nappy what can I do until we can help him desensitise? I don't want him to be this distressed. Any advice? Thanks x
