So, I am still doing the dreaded daily alodine wash on Cinny for his fungus and he is getting so relaxed in there that I started checking out if I could get around his sheath (yes, this was thought of while reading the "udder" thread). Anyway, I discovered that he probably will let me clean him myself...yay.
BUT...I found something weird. Not IN his sheath but sort of on the outside in the crease between it and his leg on the skin is a hard nodule. It sort of feels like a giant hard pimple...about the size of a pea. When I mess with it he starts acting uncomfortable and picks up his hind leg in a protective way. If I stop and go back to cleaning the rest of the outer sheath he relaxes again, it's only when I touch the nodule.
Does anybody know what this could possibly be? Do I need to have a vet rush out or can it wait until his next vaccinations (this fall)? It's so dark in there I can't really get pictures of it, I myself can't even seen it, but I can feel it.
