This may be a candida infection. Apply Canesten Cream twice day to this penis until the itching and possible rash clears up.

Hi,

Your son may be experiencing itching for a number of reasons being an infection, the foreskin starting to release from the glans, irritation from soap / softeners.

There is no need to circumcise your son to treat the itching. The condition should be diagnosed and then seek conservative options to treat the problem.
