Swollen red penis

Hello,
After masturbating vigorously yesterday I noticed that my penis had swollen up to 2-3 times normal size along the whole length , was red and quite sore.

Having visited a doctor today he said that it wasnt paraphimosis
when he looked as the foreskin wasnt stuck behind the head,
He seemed to think it was balanitis and edema although the tip doesnt lookthat red, the foreskin wont go down as the swelling makes this impossible to do.

I can pass urine normally and there doesnt seem to be any blood in it,

He gave me some antibiotics to take, unfortunately he couldnt give
me any anti inflamatories as I am on other meds which wouldnt get
on well with them.

How long does this normally take to return to normal? Also I assume
it is likely to be temporary and have no long term effects?

Regards
