My 1.5 year old, Quasi, is licking
the skin around his penis to the point that it is bleeding and
It had a small scab, but he has now licked that off. I don't think
is ill because he is as active as ever.

I would recommend you take him and get him looked at. Licking to
that point is not a normal thing - something is causing him to do
this. It could be a urinary tract infection, other urinary problems
such as crystal formation, a skin infection, or other problem
including the possibility of a mass.
