Thank you for reaching out to JustAnswer. This is Dr. Lindsey.

Veterinary laws prohibits Vets from prescribing medications without a physical examination of your pet. I will make my best recommendation based on the information you give me.

You will receive an automatic request for a phone call, I am unable to take phone consultations. If you want to speak with a Vet on the phone, let me know before we begin. 

Please give me a moment to write a response.

Can you send me a picture of the affecte area?

Thank you for the photo. It definitely looks irritated and ulcerated. Is Jax mostly and indoor or outdoor dog?

outdoor dog

Okay, so he could have caused trauma to the testicles by lying on something rough (like cement, rocks, sticks, etc), This could have then caused the abrasions and irritation. He could have also been bitten by something like a spider that cause the irritation. My best recommendation is to apply a small amount of a triple antibiotic ointment (like Neosporin) to the area twice a day. Make sure have some place he can lay down that is soft. If you notice any further swelling, odor, discharge then I would get him seen by a Vet. He may need oral antibiotics. He may also need an ecollar to prevent him from licking and causing more trauma to the area.

ok thank you
