Suggest treatment for rashes on leg

I am doing this for my son that is in Marine boot camp and stressing out about a pimply rash on his leg. He is not very informative, so I am not sure exactly if it is upper or lower. He says it is not painful and not giving him any trouble, but his drill instructors are noticing it, so it worries him. He has no allergies that I am aware of, and has always been the picture of health. No ear, throat infections. No hospital stays. Really nothing worse than a cold/flu. He did go from a northern Minnesota climate to San Diego, and of course they train outdoors, but he did not mention any itching either.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I have gone through your complaints and it could be an eczematous rash. Ask him to apply cortisone cream on the affected areas twice daily. Take antihistaminic like tablet Cetrizine once daily at bedtime if associated with itching.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
