How to reduce swelling in penis?

Hi I am 18 years old and have just been circumcised 6 days now. I just experienced today, swelling of the hole of penis which has blocked up so passing urine hasn t been very easy but have managed to release all without serious pain. Can I take paracetamol or ibuprofen to reduce the swelling. My prescribed co-codamel has almost run out which the hospital gave to me so I need something that can reduce the swelling to open up the hole again Please help.

You should take paracetamol 4 times for pain and it will help with swelling.

But swelling usually goes away within 2 weeks.
