Brief Answer:
DESITIN AND COLD ICE PACKS

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for writing to us with your health concern.
I can understand, you might have just overdone the cream.
Take heart in the fact that it will resolve itself, the skin cells over there renew themselves periodically.
Yes, for a day you would be in agony and I can give you some pointers to help that.
Desitin cream is a good agent.
Also, try using ice compresses.
Do not wipe or touch the area at all, it will only further abrade it and make it worse.
Avoid wearing undergarments.
DO not sit on the area for long.
Just apply a film of Desiting and leave it alone.
It sounds like pure agony, but by the morning, it will be fine, possibly in the night itself.
All the best
Please feel free to discuss further.
