Swollen groin and penis

Patient

Q: I have suddenly developed swelling, tenderness and pain in my groin and penis, which started yesterday morning and has got worse today. The first symptom was pain either side of the top of my groin area in the crease where my legs meet my groin, but this morning the tip of my penis is red and swollen, with some swelling just below the tip on the shaft. I have seen my GP who prescribed flucloxacillin,phenoxymethylpenicillin and doxycycline. I have only one sexual female partner who has no symtpoms. I am male, 48 years old and circumcised.
