Sore and itchy penis from smegma, why is my penis still sore?

Patient

Q: Hi, i am a 15 year old male and today i had a build up of smegma. I washed it three times today using just plain warm water and tonight my penis is sore and itchy. I put on canesten cream around the glands about an hour ago but still no use, any ideas? Is it thrush?
