This sounds like a skin infection. Antibiotics are the treatment of choice to resolve this. You can try benadryl to keep your baby from itching the area-tell me his weight and I'll figure out his dose. You will have to see your vet to get the antibiotics- The skin infection can give off a bad odor, you should also have his ears checked as an ear infection can also smell bad! Thanks Dr. Jenn
