Actually, from what I can make out in the picture there are two possibilities here, one is that this can be folliculitis which is an infection of the hair follicles on the shaft of the penis which can lead to redness in the region and the infection could have spread from that region to the scrotum. This would be diagnosed by a cl9ose clinical examination and then treated with topical antibiotics and if need be with oral antibiotics. The second possibility which comes to mind is that you could have developed an allergic reaction in the region due to a change in personal hygiene products or even due to the detergents with which you wash your clothes. This would cause itching and a red raised rash. Usually using antihistamines would be helpful in this situation which is found OTC. Topical application of hydrocortisone gel on the region would also be helpful

Lastly, one more thing which I would consider is a fungal infection which can commonly appear in this manner as for cause itching, swelling, red raised rash or even an odor coming from the genitals. A swab of the region along with an examination would make the diagnosis and topical anti fungal medications applied to the area would be helpful.

I would suggest using OTC antihistamines like Zyrtec or Claritin along with OTC topical anti fungal medications like clotrimazole for now but do get an evaluation done.

Will I need to put creme in the area or just use oral pills?

Start with the creams which should help in resolving the problem and if that does not help then oral drugs will be necessary.
