You have to be guided by your vet , i have seen something similar twice ,but the whole vulva and fleshy under part of the tail were swollen  both lambed and recovered . on your picture it is difficult to even tell what is what

I have also seen it in a ewe that had quads! She also looked a little starry eyed, so I assumed it was a bit of high blood pressure and oedema (as it would be in humans). It resolved after the birth. What did your vet say?
