In brief: Painful Rash

My hunch is you'll be okay.
This a very sensitive part of our bodies, and many reasons why you developed the rash: skin pulling while you shaved, dull blade, ingrown hairs as they grown back. Also, once the hair is gone there's a lot of rubbing, chaffing and sweating. Try to keep it dry and protect from chaffing in the next week. I think it should be fine. Maybe check with MD
