Hi there...with this little description it is difficult for us also to diagnose. It will require detailed clinical examination or at least photos to diagnose the condition. It could be anything from contact dermatitis to chancroid, herpes. So kindly consult a dermatologist for further evaluation. Till then also him to use only lukewarm water to wash his genitals. Avoid soaps, antiseptics, creams.
