This may be due to a candida infection. Give your son Nystatin Oral Solution 1ml 4 times a day for 5 days and apply Nystatin cream to his gentital area twice a day. Also give him a probiotic such as Probiflora Childrens, once daily for 10 days. Also give him a Multivitamin syrup once daily for 1 month.
