Pediatrician, Surgery 's  Response
Thank you for your query
The rashes can be due to various reasons

1. Pyoderma: that is infections especially if the swimming facilities are not hygienic
2. Allergic: try to get him cotton underpants. Synthetic fibres usually cause more reactions
3. Insect bite: is a very common cause of such rashes

Consult a pediatric surgeon. If it is infectious he may require a course of antibiotics. Else for the other two conditions he may do well with a dose or two of anti-allergic drugs
Hope that helps
God bless you
