Hi,
So sorry to hear about the issue you have been having- were you able to get it checked into by a doctor? Any rash like issues are best looked at by a doctor, it can be nerve wracking, but it's a good idea to go, if you have not been already.

Wash the head of your penis daily in the shower using ONLY plain water, towel dry and apply a small amount of jock itch cream (I use Rexall brand) which has clotrimazole in it. Do it daily and within 2 weeks you won't have the problem anymore but you need to keep doing it or it will come back.
I promise it works.
