Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX
Welcome.
I have gone through your query.
Regarding the rash --I shall be happy if you can post me few more details to help me in making comments on your problem.
1) Did you have unprotected sex preceding this symptoms?
2) Does your female partner have vaginal discharge (Vaginitis)?
3) If it is protected sex ,do you use chemically lubricated condom?
4) Is it associated with itching?
5) upload the picture for better assessment and to provide with specific advice.
6) since when you have this rash?

It might allergic reaction to either vaginal secretions or chemicals of the condom used as a lubricant, or even to new underwear or detergent used for washing it. Other possibility is balanitis.

Presently i would suggest you to wash the area with XXXXXXX warm water and with antiseptic soap like dermadew. And then tap it dry, it is better if you apply neosporin ointment to it. Anti allergic cream need to be applied in case you have itchiness.

I would have suggested you to get an random blood sugar investigation done, to rule out diabetes.

Provisional advice provided by me is based entirely on the input provided to me. I would suggest examination by the doctor.

I hope this suggestion might be of some help to you.
Take care.
