Brief Answer:
Skin infection

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

and thanks for uploading a picture. Although the image is not very clear, it appears that it is not just a rash but rather a skin infection, most probably from the shaving you mention, which was made worse by the broken skin being in contact with fecal matter for an extended period of time.

I recommend you keep the area clean and dry and apply an over the counter antibiotic ointment such as Neosporin three times per day.

If there is no improvement despite this, I'd recommend you get that seen by a doctor, as you may need oral antibiotic treatment additionally.

I hope this helps. You are welcome to ask any further questions you might have.

Wishing you good health

All the best.
