This answer was rated:

My penis was swollen this morning and hasn't really change since this morning.
Not sure why, It might be poison oak I was cutting some trees with a chain saw yesterday. There a certain amount of itching around the area swollen but it not really red in color.
What can I do?

Itching and swelling can be allergic reation related to poison oak.

Benadryl tablets 50 mg every 6 to 8 hours will help.

Also hydrocortisone 1% ointment can be applied locally twice daily.

Icing may help with the swelling as well.

Symptoms should improve within 48 hours if allergic reaction related.
