Hi Anon
this sounds like a dermatitis, he may need cortisone cream and should see a doctor to make a definite diagnosis. He need not be embarassed - the doctor will probably ask him to lie on his side, facing away, and have a quick look at the area.

Nothing to be embarrised by. The Dr has seen it all.
That is why he became a Dr.
