Most probably fungal infection
Thank you for getting back with the answers. I have gone through them. There is high probability that its fungal infection. If i were your treating doctor then i would have advised following things:
- cetirizine one at night for 5 days
- topical ketoconazole cream thrice a day.
- keep area clean & dry.
- Do not let it remain wet.
If condition remains same even after 2-3 days then he would be requiring systemic management for which he needs to visit hospital
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help if not then don't forget to close the discussion and rate it.
Wishing him good health !!
