Severe itching on the bottom of penis due to skin tear post shaving the pubic area. Remedy?

I shaved my pubic region for the first time, around a month ago. I shaved my scrotum hair as well as the hair on the bottom of my penis . At that time i didnt feel and notice any cut or redness. But a day later, it started itching a lot on the bottom of my penis... The skin was red and very itchy. I possibly peeled a thin layer of skin while shaving. Now that area is very red and sensitive. The skin has torn off. Please advice me what to do. I want to get rid of it. Thank you

General Surgeon 's  Response
There was mild injury to the scrotal skin at the base of the penis.The itching might be due to allergic reaction caused by the instrument you used for shaving.
You please take an Antihistamine drug which relieves itching.You have to take Oral Antibiotic and also anti inflammatory drug for quick healing.
You can apply local cream like povidone - iodine .
I have done lot of surgeries over the scrotum.
Don't worry.
It will be healed soon.
