Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
He does need to get this look at by a physician - but in the mean time - he should try a combination of an anti-yeast medication and a steroid cream such as mixing together clotrimazole and also hydrocortisone cream and this should help him.
