In brief: Herpes?

He should go to his dermatologist and have a culture performed for the hsv-2 virus.
If he is positive, there is a very effective prophylactic pill which he can take which can stop these breakouts from occurring. It can also greatly reduce his potential from spreading it to a sex partner.
