May be yeast/candida: A trial of antifungal cream like lotrimin af cream otc (aka 1% clotrimazole) can be used to eliminate this rash. Apply twice daily and you should see improvements over the next week. Airing the area out-allowing the area to breath will facilitate improvement. I am assuming he is otherwise healthy without fever, etc...
