Red penile shaft, burning sensation, negative STD test. Will hydro-cortisone gel help?

Hi. my penis shaft is red and irritated underneath it sort of burns. i think it may be a skin irritation and want to try using hydrocortisone gel. i tried peroxide and it made it feel a little better. what should i do? also my fiance is pregnant and she has had her test done up to 13 weeks which includes and STD test. nothing came back positive so I am certain that is not the issue here.
