A new mother has revealed her six-week-old son almost died after a doctor turned them away at the end of a rushed consultation.

Maddi Taylor became concerned after noticing strange discharge coming out of her newborn's penis and took baby Huxley to a general practitioner who found he was running a temperature of 39C.

The 24-year-old woman told Daily Mail Australia the doctor at the New South Wales medical centre simply told her to wipe the area and give the boy Panadol before he pushed her out 'as quick as possible' without 'any explanation' to what was wrong with the infant.

The boy's concerned grandmother told Ms Taylor to seek a second opinion from another doctor, who quickly admitted the boy to hospital on Tuesday.
