Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Maybe he has an infection of the glands in that region if inflammed, reddish boils are seen which may be discharging fluid. It may require antibiotics. It would be wise to avoid touching the area, avoid synthetic clothes, use only cotton clothes. Avoid sun exposure. Keep him well hydrated. Get him to a Paediatrician for proper diagnosis and management.
