Dear Worried Mom
Rather have your GP look at this, it could be a candida infection ( unlikely in such young boys) or an irritation due to the washing powder or softner you use to wash their clothes - did you change brands lately? Try washing their undies only in green sunlight soap and see if it makes a difference. Some of the washing powders contain enzymes that may be irritating to sensitive skin.
