I am sorry to hear about Merlin. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
If he is swollen, I would do cool compresses to bring down the swelling. It will get better with time.
I usually do warm compresses for infections, and this is probably just swelling and inflammation so I would do cool compresses.
Let me know if I can answer anything else.
