Scrotal swelling may be due to some cause. As the part is reddish and painful, the disease would be infection of testis and epididymis..epididymoorchitis. You consult surgeon for firm diagnosis. After thorough examination and investigation, he would give a c ourse of heavy antibiotics with antiinflammatory drugs. Your son would be alright. I hope you got my answer.
