If it doesnt subside in a few days or henders urination then i would call your vet.

I have a 36 yr old gelding whoms sheath swelled horribly buy it was determined it was from too much salt intake from a placement of a new mineral block.
Also flies,bee sting etc can cause such a spot.

Have you check for cleanliness of the sheath?If not do so and then clean if necessary.
