Sore and tender nipples with rashes near armpits after swimming. Why?

After my son 7yr. old went swimming he developed a rash under his arm pits and sore, tender nipples. I had a rash guard on him and thought that might be the cause. His nipples burned after he took a shower and they began to bleed . There is a scab on the nipples and I m wondering if the rash is related to the pool or rash guard.
