1st haircut/certain parts now pink/raw

My oes got his first professional haircut. I had previously been grooming him myself, but I am pregnant and a few months ago couldnt smell him without vomiting, so I sent him to the vet to be shaved. His testicle area usually had lots of padding and protection from his fur, but now they're just out there and they've gradually been turning bright pink and now seem to have some skin rubbed off. He spends a good deal of time outside, but we really don't have much sidewalk. He's usually either in the grass on on the side porch which is wood. Last night he started to try to lick there, but can't really reach. Is there anything I can do? Has this happened to anyone else?

I had Sammy to the vet for his skin allergy and they told me to shave his testicles and belly so that the spray they wanted me to use would work better, it seems that shaving him has made him itchy so he has licked his testicles raw, :cry: so back to the vet we go and he is now on antibiotics as he has a skin infection from licking himself raw but his the skin on his testicles is clearing up now.
I generally only clip his tummy so I hadn't had this problem before, the vet was in tears when she saw how raw Sammy was and she is trying so hard to sort his allergies out. She is now convinced he has an allergy to grass.
My dalmo is allergic to some grasses. His chews hit feet really badly in autumn, so we've figured out it must be a grass that is around more in autumn.
How can a dog be allergic to grass for pete's sake, they live in the stuff?
And I was hoping for something easy to avoid!! :oops:
Some boys have more sensitive testicles than others. Especially if there isn't much dark pigment on them. My older male has this problem. I keep an eye on him & if they start to look "pinker" I spread a small amount of antibiotic salve on them. You can use something like Panalog or Dermalone. If they "scab" up, just put the ointment right on top of the scab & after a few days you will see it start to heal to where you can start cutting away the scab.
