Dear Mountainmantrees,

Thank you for your query. The following measures should help you.

1. Wash, wipe and clean the area with a soothing antiseptic such as Savlon.

2. Use an ointment containing a combination of an antibiotic, anti-fungal and steroid (such as Betnovate GM) as a quick remedy.

3. If the rash is severe, increasing irritation or itching / burning, get a prescription for an oral antibiotic, painkiller and anti-allergic.

4. Discard the shaving blade that you have used.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any follow up queries I will be available to answer them.
