skylight condensation

skylight in bathroom gets shower steam on it, condenses, and runs down slope of glass. water gets in between inner glass and wooden interior box, eventually getting to the adjacent roof board. no leaks inside house, but the roof board is black on its surface. what can i do?

was thinking of three options
1) stuff some paper towels in the gap and change em out every so often
2) put some caulk up in there
3) get some of that Frost King plastic stuff and put it on the outside of the box, stopping steam from rising all the way to the glass

what you need is ventilation.
No matter what you try it will condense since there no air circulation
or leave a door open so the air can get in

good luck
