I would give my pet a small amount of an antihistimine(taking into consideration the size of the pet)  then I would put cold compress on the swollen part.  If the swelling does not show signs of reducing, or completely gone in a couple of hours, then you have no choice but to call your vet.

Since your post was 29 days ago, I hope that aren't still waiting for someone to tell you what you already know.  Call your vet. if you dont have a regular vet, call several and ask about making payments.  I would suspect that your dog's  problem is an impacted anal gland.  It could also be a splinter from the dog scooting across the floor or porch trying to relieve the pressure or itching from the gland.  Please try to get the dog to a vet.  At least call and ask them about the problem and any thing you could do to try to remedy the problem.
