Suggest treatment for cellulitis on the penis

I have cellulitis on my penis shaft and was given ciprofloxacin. I hope I m being treated for the right thing. It s red/pink in color and swollen and tender. I was wanting to know what would be a good lotion or cream to put on it. I keep the area clean and using Shea moisture soap.
