Hi--when did you start using the podofilox and how many times did you apply it?

Its my first week. I have applied it 3 times
OK. You basically have a first degree burn of the skin of your penis. This happens even on the wart but especially on the normal skin around it when a little too much is applied. No real damage done here but what you need to do is apply either calendula cream or an aloe vera emollient three times a day and stop the podofilox for now. Three times is more than enough for now to treat the warts--the effect continues even when you no longer apply it. Once all the redness and tenderness subsides, you can reapply the medication but I suggest only once a week

What or will this help with the swelling
Only time for now, although you could try taking some ibuprofen and either Claritin or Zyrtec to allieviate the inflammatory response.
