Persistent rash under the penis. No relief with hydrocortisone cream. Solution?

So recently (bought a week) ive gained a friction burn on the bottom underside of my penis near my testicals....even though i knew i shouldn t i masturbated. and then shaved my pubic area with a WAHL automatic razor (like the ones for your head) i then knicked my was small but it hurt a little. but the rash kinda persisted then was getting more irritated. as i couldn t take the irritation ne more i recently got hydrocortizone cream and when i put it on it burned like crazy i was in SEVERE discomfort....and then when i woke up i did it again cuz while sleeping it got irritated again it burned and later cooled, then i wasn t haveing a problem for a while. but im afraid to continue using it seeing as i still have a slight opened burn wound. i tried baby powder but as doing research i am getting worried that this will b persistant please tell me what can i do to fix this,,,,its uncomfortable. and by the way i know this is not a transmitted disease. so again can you please tell me what i can do to resolve this issue?

Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have acquired fungali nfection of the scrotal and penile skin due to shaving.

Please take anti fungal medication like Fluconazole twice daily along with topical anti fungal ointment like Meconazole twice daily.

Ensure to clean your genitals with warm water twice daily.Do not apply any antiseptic lotions.
I think it should get cured within a week.
