Pain in buttocks and thighs, red rashes. Why? Is it a sun burn?

Hello, my 8 year old son began complaining of pain on his buttocks and backs of his upper thighs. When I looked at it, hehas a terrible red rash that is hot to the touch and causing him quite a bit of discomfort. We have not changed detergent, and he was not wearing anything new. The rash is flat, like a sunburn . Any help you could lend would be greatly appreciated.
