Maybe this is normal for a 3.5 month old. I'm not sure. His penis just seems a bit blue to me. He was circumcised a day after birth. He also has a bit of redness on the bottom of his testicles which may or may not be related. Unfortunately a Google search on the topic produces 99% unrelated information. Any suggestions?
Is your baby very fair skinned? I noticed the same thing with my nephew but not my son. (They were born 1 day apart.) The difference between them is that my nephew is very fair skinned (white-blonde hair, blue eyes) like the Scandinavian side of my family, and my son is darker complected (dark brown hair and eyes) like the Portugese side of my family. The penis is full of blood vessels, so if your little guy is fair-skinned it may be more noticable. I'm definately not an expert though, so if you're really worried it might be worth a phone call to the pediatrician.

I believe his penis is not getting enough oxygen.
I would call a doctor immediately.
My very fair-skinned, circumcised, Scandinavian nephew does not have any bluish tinge to his penis.
I am the mother of 2 boys, and a daycare teacher of infants for 12 years, and yes, it IS normal to have the head of the penis be blue,could happen frequently, or rarely,but it does happen to lots of boys!!!!!! So, I wouldnt worry.
