Thanks for query,
Your son might have dermatitis or fungal infection.
Apply anti fungal or triple action cream.
Keep the part hygienic and dry.
Ok and bye.

Thanks for writing to us.
Blackheads with pimples on the scrotum are more likely to be infected hair follicles or folliculitis. Infection is a common association. He might need oral antibiotics for treatment. I encourage you to consult a dermatologist for proper diagnosis and treatment.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
