Razor burn: Skin infection/razor burn. Keep the area dry, wash with gentle soap and water, keep moisturized, and avoid sexual activity until resolved. If not improving, see a local doctor for possible antibiotic therapy.

I disagree. Rash on tip of penis and 1 cm rash on scrotum deserves more than a Dermatologist. See a Urologist ASAP, even it may be a fungus or yeast. Sounds like an STD of some type.
