Mamas of circ'd DS

Bad mommy feelings here so be gentle -
DS1 is circ'd and has been "fixing" himself a lot lately. This morning he tells me something is wrong. So I check him out and his tip is really dry, flaky. I think he's been itching.
What can I do to relieve that? Can I just use lotion?

My kiddos intact, but I thought I'd pop in anyways. I wouldn't use lotion, kind of like you wouldn't use lotion on your girly parts, kwim? Maybe something like vaseline, or that gentle naturals baby eczema cream. Something soothing and moisturizing, but is more of an oily something rather than a lotion.

We don't vaccinate, we kept our sons intact, we use cloth diapers, we co-sleep, we extended RF, we breastfeed, but we watch too much tv and I totally dig plastic! Everyone has their issues, lol.

vaseline or lanolin could help but it might be a fungal infection.

We haven't had this problem but maybe you could try raw extra virgin coconut oil... it's supposed to have healing and moisturizing benefits... he might smell like a coconut but it would do the trick.
