Exclamation Constipated Axolotl?

Click the image to open in full size.

The first pic of the constipated axie is pretty much what my albino looks like at the moment. His genitals are about 5x the normal size and it looks like there is a cut running down the centre of the area exposing flesh. He is very pink and his gills have become a deep red. He is swimming around but looks uncomfortable and is hanging around the top of the tank a lot more than usual.

Please if any one has any input - is he constipated or could it be something more sinister? Any feedback would be appreciated as to what it may be and what I could do to help him through this!
