What causes swelling in the penis?

After getting up in the morning I found that a portion of my penis has swallowed. I didn t have sex for last two days. I am married and neither of us have STDs. It appears that some insect or ants have bitten that portion of the organ, as I lied naked in the previous night. The swallowing persists even after few hours. I am very worried. Please help

General & Family Physician 's  Response
Insect bite generally induces allergic reaction. Allergies occur when your immune system reacts to a foreign body. Foreign body may medicine like drugs, pollen, animal dander, dust and insect venom etc. The severity of allergies varies from person to person and can range from minor rash to anaphylaxis.
Advice
1.     Cold fomentation with ice pack
2.     Dexamethasone 0.5 mg twice daily per oral for 5days
3.     Levocetirizine 5 mg daily per oral for 5 days
4.     Sleep wearing cloths
5.     Use insect repellent while sleeping outdoor
Thanks
