This is Dr. David
could very well be eczema. you can try 1% hydrocortisone over the counter anti-itch cream for 1-2 weeks and see if this helps
you can also try clotrimazole 1% antifungal cream twice a day for 2-3 weeks and see if that helps as well
if these don't help, you have to have him see a doctor and get his skin evaluated for stronger prescription creams.
