    Penicillin or LA 200 shots for a few days should help

    You asked a question..I gave you my answer. How is that being a smart ***? ..the pig needs meds and to see a vet. You asked...I answered..not sure what your problem is, as my answer was pretty simple and honest.
    My guess is you don't want to spend the money for a vet and didn't like my answer...Oh well..
    Good luck with him..poor thing must be in pain.:(

    I'll tell you what I would do if he were mine. I'd go to the local livestock supply and get some mastitis tubes. You can then squirt some of the antibiotic up the sheath.

    You are right. I suggested mastitis tubes because the way it is packaged makes it ideal for getting the medication where it needs to go.
