In brief: Time to see a doc...
Infections around the genitals can be bacterial (something like folliculitis) or viral (like herpes).
Both are treatable with the right medication - and both respond better to meds the sooner you start on the medication - but the only way to know is to see a doctor. Have your 'friend' see them soon! best of luck!
