Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
This could be an innocous finding.
Apply some antibiotic cream over the area thrice daily for 3 days.
Keep the area very clean.
Avoid sexual exposure right now.
If the swelling persists consult your doctor.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing your child a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.

Then this might be an allergic reaction.
Take some antiallergic tablets for a few days.
