Hi ! Is he able to retract the fore skin or not ? If there is difficulty in retracting the foreskin due to some degree of phimosis, this could be the reason for swelling of the foreskin due to possible unnoticed minor trauma during masturbation. If this and any kind of insect bite or allergy is excluded, then may be your son may require a circumcision to get relief. Wishing him an early recovery.
