Question 12 year old gelding with swollen scrotum sack.

We have a 12 year old gelding , who was gelded at age 2 with a swollen scrotum sack.It is not the whole sack but just the tip. It is also slightly hot to the touch.I cleaned him out thoroughly yesterday and inspected everything closely. He has no infections or injuries to his penis .anyone has any idea what else could cause this. I gave him a shot of penicillin yesterday and today but no change. He also seems to be uncomfortable , when he is standing he cocks his left hind foot continually.
Any help greatly appreciated.

Is he still peeing? Sounds to me more like a swollen sheath, but without pics it is difficult to know. Personally, I would not be giving antibiotics without a vets say so, but that is just me. Especially since they did not help in 24 hours. You may not have the dose right, or it may be something that antibiotics may not work on-or that is not the right one.

Warm soaks may help, but the best thing to do would be to call your vet. Typically they can give some advice over the phone, at least until they can get there.

Errr, do geldings even have scrotum sacks? I think you're talking about the sheath as well - pictures would be a great deal of help. Maybe something bit him?
