In brief: Cause and effect...

Is you son circumcised? Does he complaint of pain when he pees? Has he had this before? It is hard to be specific about what this is without more info.
I doubt it is related to swimming. In the short term you can use and antibiotic ointment/cream 3 or 4 times per day. If this doesn't help you should see a pediatrician or gp.
