In brief: Therapy
You must be very patient and seek the help of a child psychiatrist and a therapist, avoid situations where he might feel uncomfortable or "closed in".
Do not avoid the issue, but help him confront it with the help of professionals . Also make sure the adults around him do not project behaviors that the child will pick up on.
